This week Sue Anderson tells us about Back 2 Netball, the initiative to help women get started in Netball or get back involved in the game. From what we hear there’s a lot of smiles and laughter and new friends being made.
What sport/ activity does your club do?
Tell us more about your sport/ activity?
We run “Back to Netball” sessions for ladies of all abilities/ages/from all walks of life. It doesn’t matter if you have never played or if you haven’t played since school, our sessions are designed to bring the fun and laughter back into playing a game of netball. No skirts required.
What is/ are the best thing(s) about your sport/ activity?
The laughter and social side of netball, the ladies come to learn but make friends, have fun and get fit without even realising it.

You do not need to be fit to start playing, this comes with time and definitely no netball skirts.

I had a lady turn up to pay for the session and she said “this is the best £1 I will spend this week”. – Made my day hearing that.
