Walking Netball

With the nationwide success of “Walking Football”, is “Walking Netball” something the people of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey would like to participate in?

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. It can give those who feel isolated an outlet, provide an activity for those who don’t deem themselves fit enough to run anymore and offer a stepping stone for those looking for a pathway back into netball.


We are currently working with parkrun UK to try and find a suitable venue and route to host a parkrun in both Whitby and Scarborough. Many thanks to all those people who voted on the potential location of the event and we will now work with key partners to try and deliver the events. Please keep checking the website, our social media pages and the local media for any updates. We will make this happen!parkrun-logo
