How can Walking Netball improve your physical and mental well-being?
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, regardless of age or fitness level.
“I have never had so much fun, I’m fitter, my balance has improved, and I have made loads of new friends” – Linda 62 yrs old.
Walking Netball uses a modified version of the traditional netball rules. The rules have been adapted to decrease the risk of injuries and falls.
“Walking netball is a fantastic physical activity that can be played by people of all ages and abilities. This team sport can develop social interactions, a sense of community spirit and maintain physical activity in a low risk environment. The benefits of exercise can help combat obesity, enhance exercise tolerance and improve one’s mental wellbeing. Walking netball is an ideal sport for anybody looking to become more active in their community.” – Dr Marie Carey, Everyday Medical Centre
Walking Netball is a great way to re-introduce yourself back into team sports. As it’s slower paced, it’s ideal for players recovering from injuries or for people that haven’t exercised in a long-time.
You don’t need any experience and can start gently while gradually building up your strength and fitness.
Walking Netball is a fun and friendly social sport that is focused on improving the physical and mental well-being of all participants.
