Walking Netball

Do you love netball but not the high impact nature of the game?  Come out of 'Netball retirement', build fitness, recover from injury, or take it easy pre/post baby.  Walking netball is for all adults and provides a suprising amount of exercise and satisfaction with low impact/injury risk.  The requirement to keep one foot on the ground creates more of a level playing field for players of all ages and abilities, and definitely adds to the laughs!

Walking Netball was developed in the UK and is now played around NZ.  If you can walk and catch a pass then you can play walking netball!  

On the night we make up teams and use rolling subs to ensure everyone is involved as much as they like.  Usually we play periods of 10 minutes with short breaks between, switching positions (and sometimes teams!) at the breaks. 

Modified rules:

  • No running
  • No jumping
  • One foot must be grounded at all times
  • Players may take one step
  • Players have 4 sec to release the ball once in their possession
  • Normal contact and obstruction rules apply.
  • No uniforms are required.  We make up teams on the night and provide bibs/ball and umpire.  Bring your friends or make new ones on the night.
