The Challenge is on for an Active Autumn
England Netball is challenging women across the country to head to their nearest Back to Netball session this autumn and get fitter and healthier the netball way.
Running across England since 2010, over 50,000 women have taken part in Back to Netball in association with ZEO, and realised the benefits of getting involved. From burning calories and lowering body fat, improving muscle tone and hand-eye co-ordination, and developing the body’s cardiovascular system, taking part in Back to Netball is great for you in so many ways.
Sessions provide a gentle re-introduction to the game for women over sixteen and are led by qualified coaches. You can just turn up, sessions are pay and play, and you can expect to cover basic skills like passing and footwork and play in a fun and friendly match. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel that fit, you can take the session at your own pace and there a position on the netball court for everyone.
If you fancy coming along to a Back to Netball session, check out the video below to see what you can expect.
If you do decide to give Back to Netball a try, it would be really handy
if you can print out the Back to Netball Registration Form, have a
read, fill in the details and hand to your coach when you arrive. If
you can’t, don’t worry, our coaches will have on hand for you to
complete at your first session. You don’t need any special kit, just
clothes that you feel comfortable exercising in and trainers ideally
that lace up and we recommend a Freya Active sports bra. Make sure you
bring some water and that you’ve had a snack a couple of hours before
hand, something like our lovely sponsors Mrs Crimbles flapjacks or a
banana so you’ve got plenty of energy.
Hundreds of women from all
over the country are getting 'Back to Netball’ each week. Pop your
postcode into our handy session finder to find out where your nearest
session is and have a more active autumn.
