Come and learn a new skill ... for fun, friendship and fitness
Open to all ... no previous netball experience required.
The Leatherhead Lesiure Centre
The Mole Barn
Every Friday @ 2.30pm
Please not there will be a charge for the hire of the court, until numbers are established we do not know the what that will be weekly... we estimate between £2-£4 per session.
A coach and umpire secured , bibs and balls brought, emails sent and messages on FB posted we waited anxiously on Friday at Leatherhead Leisure Centre to see how many members would come along to the first coaching session of Walking Netball. We were happy & overwhelmed when 31 members arrived to support this new WI activity.
We decided to invite other local WI members along and Ashtead did not disappoint with 14 members arriving & 17 members form Butterflies both eager to learn a new skill.
Elaine ( our coach ) explained what the first session entailed and we started with a warm up , ball skills and then 3 minute games allowing everyone to have a go , followed by a cooling down. ... to experience going forward what to expect.
For some it was a challenge walking having played at school! Some members had never played so it was good to all start from the beginning with Walking Netball rules.
I hope those that came along whether or not you loved it or had reservations will give it another go .
Going forward we would like you to feel it is for all aspects of fitness ... either as a 'Wiggle & a Giggle ' or if you would like to be a little more competitive and are " In it to win it '( and would like to play league matches)
Either way everyone is welcome and we hope to make this full of fun, friendship & fitness.
