Forres walking netball experiment extended – and includes Elgin

A TRIAL OF ‘walking netball’ that is suitable for all ages and abilities will continue in Forres – and also be extended to Elgin.

Moray Council was asked by Netball Scotland to carry out the pilot of the slower version of the game – the Forres sessions followed, and after a slow start picked up enough to allow another four-week block to take place in the town from the start of next month.

Now the local authority has also said they will extend the trial to Elgin over the same period.

Walking Netball is tailored to the needs of each participant – and those completely new to the sport are more than welcome to take part in a comfortable and fun environment.

The Forres sessions will run on a Thursdays in the community centre from 2-3pm, beginning on November 9 for four weeks. Elgin’s sessions will also run for four weeks in the community centre each Monday from 11am-noon, commencing on November 6.

Each session is open to those over 18 years-old, and costs £3 or free to attend to Fit Life? members. More information is available from Moray Council’s sports development team on 01343 563657, or head along to one of the sessions to chat to a qualified netball coach.
