New indoor netball league coming to Downham Market Academy in September 2021

A brand-new indoor netball league is coming to the courts of Downham Market Academy this September!

The league, ran by Leagues4you, aims to get people off the couch and onto the court in 2021.

The new league is perfect for teams of all experience levels, meaning you don't need to be a netball aficionado to sign up. Even if you haven't played since school you'll be able to join in the netball fun.

One player who knows the transformative power of playing netball is Leagues4you player 'Marie', who said: "We were basically a bunch of middle aged mums, no one knew each other - I was the common link. They were all pretty much forced to be in my team against their will! We hadn’t played since school!

“Now netball is life…. We are a group of close friends, we text every day, we train on a Monday and we live for our matches!

“It’s the best thing that has happened to us. We haven’t won a single game but have put our heart and soul into every one and have given the other team a good run for their money! We get better every single game."

Everything for the league is organised, so all you need to do is bring yourself and your bibs. All matches are indoors, meaning that players will still be able to get their weekly netball fix whatever the weather.

Players looking for an extra confidence boost can attend a Couch2Court session a week prior to the league's start. There you'll get a reminder of the rules, be able to practice some skills and drills, and meet other netball newbies. There's plenty of fun and games, plus a chance to show off your new netball skills in some mini matches. The sessions are coach led, so are perfect for anyone who needs a bit of a boost before the league.

The league starts on September 23, and teams can register via the Leagues4you website at https://leagues4you.co.uk/ or by contacting David at davidlancaster@leagues4you.co.uk
