FOR FITNESS AND FOR LAUGHS Netball at a walking pace
“Taking it slow” is the motto for a group of adults that play walking netball at the Wilfred Taylor Reserve at Morphett Vale.
This slowed down version of the game is the latest craze for adults who want to play netball but are not able to run or jump.
“Anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level,” says Laurie Bilby from the Southern United Netball Association (SUNA). “It’s ideal for people recovering from injury, new mothers or anyone that’s keen to learn to play netball for the first time.”
Walking netball has evolved from a growing demand for walking sports. Players who’ve hung up their netball trainers from the game due to serious injury are also finding their way back to netball, as their love for the game never leaves.
SUNA is currently running two sessions a week on Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings until their summer break. Each session includes a gentle warm up and is suitable for both men and women of all abilities.
“Walking netball is a great way to stay active and get a bit fitter,” Laurie says. “Even if you’re not that keen on sport, this is a great way to meet new friends and have a laugh.”
