What we're about

We are a women's netball team that has been running for 12 years! We play for fun on Thursdays term-time nights. We play to keep fit and enjoy the game, and we aren't in any leagues. Come and join us, even if you haven't played in decades!

When and where?

Fortismere School in Muswell Hill, termtime Thursdays 8.00-9.00pm. You can park in the school.

How much is it

It’s £5 a week or you can pay for a term and get a discount.

I can’t come every week, is that OK?

You can drop in when suits you, most of us can’t make every Thursday so our group always aims to be bigger than the 14 needed for a full match. But you’ll get more out of it if you come pretty regularly, and it's really satisfying to see yourself improving.

Who plays?

It’s a women’s team, and we range in age from 20s - 50s. Most of us played at school and have come back to the sport after a while. We are at recreational to intermediate standard (I hope coach agrees!) Our fitness levels vary a lot but you will definitely need to push yourself, whatever your fitness. It’s an excellent way to get fitter!

I can’t really remember the rules!! Will I be OK?

That’s totally fine, they’ve changed a bit over the years anyway. We’ll remind you of the basics and no one will mind you fudging it as you find your feet.

What’s the coaching like?

Our superb coach Elaine comes every other week and does about 20 minutes of coaching which we then apply in a match. Then the next week is all match play and we try to apply what she taught us. We’re encouraged to learn physical skills and to think tactically in the game. It’s really rewarding to learn as a team.

Do you play other teams?

Not in a league. But we are setting up friendlies against other local teams this year.

Will I annoy people if I makes mistakes?

No! It’s a friendly team, so as long as you’re in the spirit of the game you’ll be fine
