Netball is bouncing back in Stroud

Back to Netball

Enjoyed playing netball at school? Stopped playing and would love to start again? Looking for a fun, new activity? If you answered yes to any of the above then Stratford Park Leisure Centre's Back to Netball programme is just what you're looking for.

Back to Netball is designed to provide a gentle introduction to the sport for female players over 16 years of age. Sessions are coach led and cover basic skill development and court play. The emphasis of the sessions is learning new skills and having fun whilst playing.

The first of the ten weekly sessions is this Thursday (13th January) at 9am at Stratford Park Leisure Centre, Stroud. Experienced coach and player Charlotte Olley is running the sessions.
