Walking Netball Anyone?!

In 2021, North Ryde Spirits will be introducing Walking Netball (now known as Over 30’s Netball), which by all reports is a lot of fun! Walking Netball is a great way to get back into Netball if its been a while since you played, or if injury is preventing you from doing a higher impact sport.

It is for over 30s only (unless you have a medical note from your doctor stating why you can’t play senior netball) Players cannot play in both walking netball and Seniors comp.

For more information on Walking Netball and for the rule changes vs regular netball, see attached.

What’s Happening in 2021??

2020 introduced a number of new COVID safe procedures we all had to adhere to in order for the netball season to eventually go ahead. With these procedures in place and all members respectful following of the guidelines determined by NSW Health, ERNA was able to complete all 10 weeks of the shortened season, even when there were COVID cases identified in some players and their close contacts. So whilst anything could still happen, we think it will take a lot more than a global pandemic to prevent the netball season starting as planned!

However there are still some unknowns: in particular for junior and modified players, we will not know until Feb/Mar whether we can use our usual school based training locations again in 2021. In the event they remain unavailable, we will endeavor to again identify appropriate alternative locations for team training.
