Walking Netball

Try Something New! Walking Netball in Lincolnshire.

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace where the rules are slightly tweaked. 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.

Sessions are run by specially trained Walking Netball Hosts who run the activities and join in with all the fun and laughter!

It’s a fantastic way to keep active and make new friends. You can pay and play for a single session and see how you like it – no long-term commitment is required. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never played before, and they cater for all levels of fitness and ability.

” I come twice a week, and it’s just given me a new lease of life. I love it.”

What do I need to take part?

You don’t need any specialist equipment or clothing to play walking netball. All you need is:

  • a comfortable and sturdy pair of shoes, like trainers,
  • loose clothing that you are able to move easily in,
  • a fleece or jumper for the cooler days and to keep you warm before and after playing,
  • and a water bottle to help keep you hydrated while you play.

The clubs and sports halls will provide the bibs, balls and goal posts during your session. As this is predominantly an outdoor sport, make sure you check the weather and prepare to wear warmer or cooler clothing for your session.
