Summer 2019: The joy of netball

 

The netball World Cup is over and, for our family,the netball season is over too for a few weeks. What a delight it was to head over to the village courts last Tuesday for the end of season jamboree – fun and games, parents and coaches v players challenge match and presentations. You know you’re getting old when a coach hands over the shooter’s bib and reassures you that “there’s not much running around in that role” – but the husband showed a nifty turn of speed and some ‘moves’ which warmed his daughter’s heart.

I can’t recommend highly enough the benefits of getting involved in netball for women and girls. Fresh air, exercise, and camaraderie in training and games builds confidence, strong friendships and teamwork.

The ladies who started netball in the village should be proud of what they have achieved – dozens of women and girls turning out to train and play every week on the village courts and in the local league, come rain or shine, with a smile on their faces. And it’s so great to see how the girls encourage one another to be their best selves and support each other through the tough times.

Low cost, feel – good, golden times.
