Walking netball is a new variation of netball, introduced by England Netball. It evolved from the growing popularity of other walking sports such as football.It’s basically netball, but at a walking pace with rules on footwork and possession differing slightly to the regular game.
The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level. So whether you’ve had to put your netball career on hold due to serious injury, or you thought you’d hung up your netball trainers a long time ago, walking netball is a fantastic way to introduce yourself back into the sport.
We decided to go and see for ourselves and chat to the players, coach and even join their training session.
