Group report

This group has been in existence for only 8 months, we have had some wonderful sessions led by Deanne Cushion who has been instrumental in teaching us the core elements of walking netball. I would like to give Deanne a huge THANK YOU! because although I came up with the idea of starting this group I hadn’t played since my school years and couldn’t remember the rules at all!!

We have increased our knowledge and become a little fitter but most of all we have had great fun and laughed a lot. We meet weekly and currently have 18 lady members but we are an open group and if any lady reading this report would like to find out if walking netball is a game they would like to try then please contact me and I will give you the details.

Group report

Eleven ladies travelled to Horndean to play our first match. We hadn't had an opportunity to play a full game before due to lack of numbers but because we have had lots of ball practice we didn't let ourselves down. At the end of 4 quarters the final score was 6-4 to Horndean and they have been playing for 3 years compared to our 4 months! Well done ladies!
