NEW Walking Netball

England Netball registered Walking Netball sessions are coming to the Yorkshire Coast!

Walking Netball has evolved from a growing demand for walking sports. Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level. From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone.

Women the length of the country have begun playing the game of Walking Netball for the fun, laughter and camaraderie the social session brings, as much as the health benefits on offer.

Our Level 2 Netball Coach Natalie will be running sessions in Scarborough and Whitby starting the week beginning 9th of January 2017! Each session costs £2.

Scarborough: Tuesdays 11am – 12pm at Barons Fitness Centre (Scarborough Rugby Club), Scalby

Whitby: Wednesdays 2pm – 3pm at Whitby Leisure Centre, Whitby
