Netball is becoming a sport that is more and more accessible to the millions of people in the UK, and it is becoming more prominent across the sports channels meaning more and more people are getting to watch it and understand the rules, and they are able to become fans of teams that are quite probably local to them.
Benefits of netball include:
Running – Playing netball encourages running, with short sprints around the court commonplace. Running will provide a good cardiovascular workout for you and if completed regularly it will improve your overall fitness, strength and agility.
Hand Eye Coordination – Different throwing techniques are used in netball to pass the ball to teammates, and this encourages the improvement of hand eye coordination, which will benefit you in the game, but also in everyday life too.
Flexibility – The nature of netball means that you will be moving and turning a lot to be able to pass balls to, and receive balls from, your teammates. Regular activity like this will improve your overall flexibility and again this will help both in sport and your life in general.
Postivity – It is proven that people who are engaged in sport have a clearer mind, and are therefore less at risk of suffering from a mental health issues.
