Welcome toNetball 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!
