Back to Netball

England netball logo England Netball is looking for women to hit the courts, have fun and get fit playing Netball local leisure centres and sports facilities.

Netball is played by one million women and girls a week in the UK, and is one of the most popular female team games in the world.  However, as with numerous sports, many women who have played at school, college and University stop playing following education.

Back to Netball is a current England Netball initiative that is happening up and down the country providing a gentle introduction into the sport and is proving to be a great success. Netball is a great way to stay fit and healthy and just one hour can burn up to 660 kcal.  Whether it is about rediscovering sporting abilities you forgot you had or about getting active again, these sessions cater for all abilities.

Sessions are coach led and will cover basic skill development and court play. The emphasis of these sessions is on getting active, learning new skills and having fun playing Netball with friends.
