Sporting Focus: BL Netball

What days and times do you train? Where do you train?

We understand everyone has busy schedules and since we play games twice a week, each team trains every other Thursday evening, 6-8pm at St Pauls Way Trust School in Mile End!

What makes your training sessions enjoyable?

We kick off our training sessions with half an hour of fun fitness / circuits to get everyone sweating and hyped up for the session. We keep it varied each week and try our best to make the fitness enjoyable by taking it back to our school days and playing games like Speed Bounce! Next we get into some netball drills to improve the our basic skills, then implement these in some game play at the end of the session. We’ve also got a killer playlist blasting throughout to keep everyone moving and dancing!

What was your club’s biggest success of the past year?

This year we added another 7th team and officially became the biggest club at Barts with over a hundred members!! We’re the biggest family ever.

So why should you get involved?

Get involved with BL Netball to join our family! This club gives you best friends for on and off the court, and will support you even after your time at Barts ends.

And a final fun fact about this club?

This year we’ve started volunteering to coach netball to children at local secondary schools! There’s nothing that netball girls can’t do ladies and gents.
