What’s the best thing about your club?
“I just love it,” said Joanne Stone, one of the club organisers. “I’ve played netball since school. It’s not just a fitness class, we all love playing netball together. It’s a really friendly club.
Often you hear people say, ‘Oh I loved playing netball at school!’ I say to them: ‘So come along – it’s still the same sport!’ And you don’t need to get your fitness sorted first. We have a buddy scheme when you first start to ensure new people feel included.”
