Frequently Asked Questions 

Why Walking Netball?

Walking Netball is ideal as you can start gently and build up gradually, aiming to do a little more each session. You may be surprised by how much fun walking netballers can have, how much fitter and healthier you will feel and how much you can achieve.

And it’s not just health benefits… Walking Netball offers social benefits too. You get to meet new people, have fun, and interact with individuals and small groups

What are the rules?

To play Walking Netball some rules need to be adapted. The obvious one being no running!

During the game, an extra step maybe taken once a player has received the ball, which reduces the impact on landing and improves the momentum of the game.

What do I wear for a Walking Netball session?
