Welcome to
Netball Wellington Centre

Low Impact (Fast Walking) Netball

 It's never too late to try something new!

This adapted version of netball was introduced in England and is aimed at ladies and gents aged 18+ who love netball yet may like to try a quick-paced yet not-so-hard-on-the-joints version of the game.  Perhaps you're recovering from injury, just had a baby, last played at primary school or college and want to ease back in, wish to learn to play for the first time, would like to stay active in a high-tempo yet low-impact way, get a bit fitter, remain mobile or just come along to meet new friends and have a laugh. Whatever your "why", we're happy to fill your need!

In this modified game timing, ball-placement, pass selection and space is crucial.  You'll be forced to rethink tactics given you can't just simply out-run or out-jump your opponent.  Great dodges and thoughtful positioning become your go-to tools instead.  Don't let the name fool you... you'll soon work up a sweat!

To learn more, check us out mentioned in the media:

Rules are:

  • Participants must be over 18 years of age
  • No running or jumping - one foot must be on the ground at all times
  • Player can hold the ball for up to 4 seconds
  • When in competitive-mode, maximum of three males on courts at any one time - one in the defence circle area, one in the mid-court area and one in the shooting circle area.  Otherwise all-play, any position available.
  • All other standard netball rules apply

No uniforms necessary & bibs are supplied. 
Teams are compiled on the night so just turn up!
Short games/quarters of no more than 10 minutes with rolling subs allowed as required.
Flexibility vital as depending on numbers on the night means there may be more playing periods for shorter time.
​​​​​​​All genders, all ability and disability most welcome.
Come and try as a wee taster - with any luck you'll get hooked!
