Walking netball is a slowed version of the game of netball, designed for anyone looking to exercise in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment.
Every session contains a gentle warm up, and walking netball is a game for all ages and abilities.
No need to book just turn up.
So, how do you rules differ to normal netball?..........
Walking Netball Rules
- The main rule, which must be enforced in all Walking Netball sessions is to ensure that everyone is WALKING: A player must have at least part of one foot in contact with the court at all times.
- During the game, an extra step maybe taken once a player has received the ball, which reduces the impact on landing and improves the momentum of the game.
- A player may receive the ball with one foot grounded and then take two steps while in possession of the ball before it must be thrown or shoot.
- An extra second has been allowed to increase the decision-making time whilst in possession of the ball, which should encourage improved ball placement: A player may throw the ball within four (4) seconds of receiving the ball.
