Gloucestershire host county wide Biggest Summer of Netball Walking Netball Festival

As part of our Biggest Summer of Netball Gloucestershire hosted their very own Walking Netball festival on Saturday 20th July

The event saw 7 teams and over 70 ladies compete from across the county go head to head in a day full of matches at the fabulous brand new indoor arena at Hartpury College.

Congratulations goes not only to our winners Wyedean Walking Netball, but to all the teams that got involved and competed in the event

A big thanks goes to Les Thomas from the Gloucestershire County Netball Association who without the event would not have been able to take place.
