This week in netball: Week 6

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.

#StayInWorkOut creativity continues

As lockdown continues, staying as physically active as possible is more important than ever.

Through their Join the Movement campaign, Sport England is encouraging the nation to keep active and social media has been awash with creative ideas.

Together or apart, people across the nation are finding fun ways to #StayInWorkOut as Sport England have perfectly encapsulated in their newly-released campaign video.


No court? No worries! The Netball Family have once again found new ways to keep playing and enjoying the sport we all love, including creating an improvised post.

The Vitality Roses have also shared yet more stay at home drills with Eleanor Cardwell providing three back garden shooting drills so you can #TakeNetballHome with Gilbert.

Sprinkling magic and beelief

To keep U11s busy bees at home and in the garden (weather permitting!), skill and creative challenges will be released weekly as part of the Bee@Home programme.

Week one was designed to sprinkle a bit of magic and beelief with a Bee Netball rainbow to download and colour in.

Week two saw a bingo card released with 12 family friendly and boredom busting activities to complete. Both resources can be downloaded here and the latest skill challenges can be viewed here.

Trick shot central in the Alternative Superleague

The Round 3 challenge in the Alternative Superleague was to create the best trick shot and the Netball Family certainly didn’t disappoint.

From shooting behind a really tall defender (read: a big tree in the garden) to successfully throwing a crumpet into the toaster, there were some fantastic entries.

Representing Surrey Storm, Florence proved that age and distance is no barrier and was crowned the winner!

Now, more than ever, Every Mind Matters

During COVID-19, it’s essential to take care of your mind as well as your body while staying at home.

With many feeling worried, anxious or isolated during these challenging times, Every Mind Matters’ new advice highlights that there are lots of things we can do to look after our mental wellbeing.

One of the top tips is to maintain contact with friends, teammates and family via phone and video calls and the Vitality Roses have been doing just that with regular sessions together.
