Walking Netball – free taster sessions

Posted on: December 4th, 2017
New Walking Netball session at the Jack Kane Sports Centre at Craigmillar, Edinburgh.  The tasters sessions for this will be on Tuesday 5th and Tuesday 12th December, there will be no charge. 

We welcome all ages and abilities (So far it has been mainly women, but we do have a few men participating too!)

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game, it is netball but at a walking pace, with adapted rules and court size. One of the strengths of the sport is that people never forget playing the game, the memories and the love of the game never leave. It is proven that participation in physical activity and sport can prevent, and in some cases, can help to treat and manage many chronic diseases. It can improve both physical and mental wellbeing, which was a huge impact for the ladies who took part in the pilot programme.
