NETBALL - Community at the heart of new Warwick netball initiative

Leamington Editorial 8th Oct, 2022   0

ALMOST 50 people from across the Warwick Area got back into sport last week as a brand-new initiative commenced in the town.

Netball Leagues – a firm specialising in community netball designed to get people active and playing – saw their new league begin last week. And the season started with a bang!

Players are able to sign up to the league through its Single Player sign up feature with the league then assigning that player to a team within its structure.

Spokesman Adam Glover said: “It was fantastic to see everyone just enjoying themselves. That is absolutely what we do.




“We reach out to people who might not have got into the school team, who haven’t played sport for years and those who just want to make some new friends. All of those things happened here.

“Most of the people in our leagues are not in an existing structure and have been attracted by our Single Player sign up feature. Just sign up and we’ll make sure you’ve got a team.


“We understand people might be nervous at taking up a sport, in some cases the first time or perhaps for the first time in decades, and we can promise a supportive, welcoming atmosphere. A little like the Park Run for netball, if you will.”

The facilities at Aylesford School make for the perfect environment, and Glover stated that they had done all they could to support the community initiative.

Glover added: “We look forward to growing it with them throughout the next few months.”

Men are also welcomed, with a couple of men trying their hand at netball for the first time on Monday.

Anyone aged 16 or over is welcome to sign up and try something new at: www.netball-leagues.co.uk
