Walking Netball

What is Walking Netball?


Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so anyone can play, regardless of age, ability or fitness level. It's a great way to stay active with minimal risk of injury, increase fitness and meet a bunch of new friends. Walking Netball is all about laughter, participation and friendships. 

"The hardest part about Walking Netball is being brave enough to walk through the door, but once you do, you will be welcomed by lots of smiles and a bunch of new friends. I encourage people of all ages to come and try Walking Netball."~Rhonda Newton, Walking Netball Pilot Program Co-ordinator .

COMPETITIVE WALKING NETBALL

This is for people who are very steady on their feet and like a more competitive game. Most people in this group will have played netball before (some haven’t) and have enough balance to be able to take the occasional knock from an opposition player.

 

SOCIAL WALKING NETBALL

This is slower than the competitive game and focuses more on fun and safety. If you haven’t played netball before or haven’t exercised in a while or maybe you need a bit of extra time or space to find your balance, this session is for you. You must still be able to move and change direction quickly without losing your balance to participate in this session.
