Walking Netball is netball but at a walking pace! This program is a modified version of netball that reduces the risk of injury while promoting a safe, non-threatening environment for play. Walking Netball will improve your physical health and wellbeing and will help you stay active and social, regardless of fitness or age. 

Walking Netball provides a fun, safe environment and encourages adults to have a more gradual introduction to physical activity by regaining necessary motor skills, helping balance, coordination, and better footwork. Other benefits include improved strength, flexibility and circulation, along with long-term fitness and weight maintenance benefits.

Walking Netball also encourages social interaction and is a great way to make friends or even spend time with old friends on a regular basis.

Everyone is welcome to enjoy Walking Netball regardless of physical fitness, age or previous netball experience.

Walking Netball is designed to reduce the risk of injury and falls to the players while promoting a safe, non-threatening environment for play, which is achieved through these modifications to the rules:

•	Shorter quarters
•	No running or jumping
•	1-2 steps with the ball
•	4 seconds of possession
•	Rolling substitutions

As part of the Walking Netball program Netball WA are offering an alternative to competition with a Walking Netball Exercise Class! 

Held at The Gold Netball Centre, this weekly class will be 1 hour of fun and fitness getting participants up and moving without the fast pace of your normal gym class. The class will see a mixture of walking netball warm ups as well as strength and netball exercises and a weekly fun and social Walking Netball match! 

An exercise physiologist will be at each class to assist with warming up and, if you would like, to help assess your physical health.
