Walking Netball Festival 2023
Walking Netball Festival Fun
On Saturday 25th March 2023, Team East was delighted to welcome 15 walking Netball Teams to Cambridgeshire for a day of match play. All our East Region Counties were represented with at least two Walking Netball teams entering.
The day was split into a competitive Walking Netball and Wiggle & Giggle Festival which teams were able to opt for their preference. Over 140 lovely fun-loving ladies took to the courts and played games against 6/7 other teams.
There were trophies handed out for Best Goal, Fair play and Standout player in both of the festivals, which proved to be a really difficult job to select as everyone that took part was enthusiastic and fabulous! A massive well done to Lib’s Ladies from Norfolk who won the 'In It 2 Win It' Competition' with Creeky Forces from Cambridge coming runner up just a couple of points off.. Team presentations were made by the East President, Sheelagh Redpath
Our East Regional Festival was a great way to showcase the popularity and success of Walking Netball within each County and how many woman & men are enjoying our sessions. Not only are the participants taking the opportunity to get fit and be active, more importantly they are building fantastic friendships on and off the court. We can’t wait for the next one!
Netball East would like to congratulate all the teams that took part and would like to say a huge thank you to Cambridgeshire University Sports Centre for providing us with such a great venue and all their wonderful support throughout the day! Our fab Walking Netball Hosts for entering teams and continuing to deliver Walking Netball across our region and our wonderful volunteers who supported the event on the day.
