Back to Netball

Back to Netball 2021 Information

HLNC will be running 6 ‘Back to Netball’ sessions led by a UKCC Level 2 coach, to provide a gentle re-introduction to the game.  You will be shown techniques to help you master the basic skills like passing, catching and footwork.  Along with this, each week you will also be given an understanding of the rules which will allow you to take part in match play in a fun environment with like minded ladies.

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 2021 are:

  • Monday 10th May
  • Monday 17th May
  • Monday 24th May
  • Monday 7th June
  • Monday 14th June
  • Monday 21st June

(All sessions are 7 – 8:15pm)

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.

COVID-19 Guidelines:

We unfortunately had to postpone our 2020 Back to Netball sessions, but following government advice on COVID-19 we are back with the 2021 Back to Netball series! Please be assured we will be following England Netball COVID-19 guidance during these training sessions. Check out our COVID-19 page for more information on the measures we have in place.
