Run Walking Netball

Southmead is looking for a volunteer to help run Walking Netball sessions. Put simply, 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 it regardless of age or fitness level. Walking Netball has evolved from a growing demand for walking sports. Often, one of netball’s strengths is that people never forget playing the sport and the memories as well as the love for the game never leave. Women the length of the country have begun playing the game of Walking Netball for the fun, laughter and camaraderie the social session brings, as much as the health benefits on offer. It can give those who feel isolated an outlet, provide an activity for those who don’t deem themselves fit enough to run anymore and offer a stepping stone for those looking for a pathway back into netball.

From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone. We’re looking for an enthusiastic volunteer who could help put this on in Southmead – you don’t need to be an expert, just be willing to give up some time every week to support a session locally! Training and support can be provided, if you are interested just contact Serge on 07756 908525 or
