This week in netball: week 10

Over the last week, people have been using social media as a tool to get their netball fix.

The Netball Family have found innovative ways to stay connected during this time through shooting challenges, home workout tips and sharing positive stories online.

We have pulled together the best bits shared on social media from the last seven days.

Introducing the Virtual Netball Club

Whilst we can’t get on court, we’re taking membership online with the Virtual Netball Club.

From Vitality Roses workouts to live junior and senior training sessions, as well as Netball Natter with presenter Zara Buck, and so much more, there’s something for everyone.

Every Monday, we’ll send England Netball members a schedule of what you can expect to see at the VNC each day and week one went down an absolute treat – roll on week two!

More sunshine = more netball in the garden

The sun has been shining and netballers across the country have continued to #TakeNetballHome.

From a mother (GA) and daughter (C) netball duo to pets even getting in on the action, players keep training to maintain their fitness and sharp skills ready for when it’s safe to return to court.

Helen Housby school of shooting

The Vitality Roses are also working hard with Helen Housby coming up with a little invention for her shooting practice.

And she’s inspired an isolation shooting gang with a host of netballers giving her rebounder set-up a go.

First winner of ‘Any Dream We’ll Do’

We said ‘Any Dream We’ll Do’, you nominated fellow members and we delivered the first prize with a bit of help from the most capped Vitality Rose Jade Clarke.

Ellis Adamson, who is working on the front line at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust and is part of St Agnes Netball Club in Cornwall, was the inaugural winner of our ‘Any Dream We’ll Do’ initiative.

She was nominated by Hannah Turner and speaking about Ellis, Hannah said: “She is working with Covid patients with end of life care and despite seeing the worst, she always smile and keeps things positive. She has worked throughout lockdown but continues to motivate our members by posting fitness challenges and home workouts for us to participate in. How she finds the time I don’t know!”

Don’t forget to keep nominating any fellow members that inspire you as we’ll draw a new winner each week.

Officiating Net-Fix Shorts

England Netball’s Officiating department have set up a brand new initiative to help umpires stay active and engaged.

Officiating Net-Fix Shorts is a collection of weekly tasks and challenges which can be applied to any matches available to view online – check it out!

Make sure to return next week to see a comprehensive round-up of the most exciting netball content from the last week!
