NEW Walking Netball

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 and Level 1 Netball Coach Rochelle will be running sessions in Scarborough starting the week beginning 24th of April 2017! Each session costs £2.

Scarborough: Tuesdays 11am – 12pm at Scarborough Sports Village, Ashburn Road.

Scarborough: Thursdays 7.30pm – 8.30pm at Bramcote Sports Hall (entrance on Filey Road down the steps)

It’s back to school with this classic English game. Rounders follows a very similar format to Baseball, with pitching, batting, fielding and reaching bases to score points. This is a session sure to introduce, or re-introduce you to a great game!

Rounders sessions are open to all abilities, with the sessions being delivered by our friendly and welcoming Community Sport Activators.

Whitby: Tuesday evenings 6pm – 7pm on Eskdale School field, YO22 4HS.
