What is Back To Netball?
Back to Netball is an initiative introduced by England Netball which has been running since 2010. Sessions are held nationwide where women aged 16+ who have not taken to a court for a few years or since school, are encouraged to come along and have a go. Since its formation, over 100,000 women have taken part and seen the benefits of getting involved in a fun, team sport. Hundreds of women from all over the country are getting “Back to Netball” each week so whether it is about rediscovering sporting abilities you forgot you had or becoming active again, Back to Netball is a fun way of getting fit and making friends.
Where and when:
The sessions will be held at the Hinckley Ladies Netball courts at the Leicester Road Sports Ground, Leicester Road, Hinckley LE10 3DR between 7.00 – 8.15pm.
The dates for 2020 are:
- Monday 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th March
- Monday 6th, 20th & 27th April
How to get there:
To get to the courts, follow the signs to Leicester Road Sport Club turning off the Leicester Road into the Hinckley Rugby Club complex. Follow the road along and past the tennis courts. Go through the large metal gates and keeping the clubhouse on your left, go past this and you will see the courts and plenty of parking space in front on you.
What you will need:
You don’t need any special kit, just clothes that you feel comfortable exercising in and suitable trainers that lace up. Converse or fashion canvas “plimsoll” types are not allowed, as you will be running and jumping so suitable footwear that provide grip and ankle support is a must. For safety, you will be required to remove all jewellery (wedding bands can be taped), nails need to be short with long hair tied back and don’t forget to bring plenty of water to keep hydrated! The cost will be £3 per session.
We are already taking expressions of interest for these sessions so if you think this might suit you and want to give it a go, we would love to hear from you. To put your name down to be kept informed or if you would like any further information about this please email Gemma Braga (email@example.com) who will be leading the Back to Netball sessions.
