Netball is a fast-paced team game which, if played regularly, will quickly boost your health and fitness levels. As well as burning calories and lowering body fat, regular play increases aerobic capacity and improves upper body strength, hand-eye coordination, leg muscle strength and stamina, flexibility, and agility.
PLAY WITH EVERYONE ACTIVE
All our leisure centres that have a sports hall will generally offer netball, as halls are pre-marked with a court. Back to netball, walking netball and junior netball will all be on offer in some centres. In order to book your session hit the ‘book now’ link.
