Walking netball at Coxhoe Leisure Centre

Walking Netball


Just like walking football, this session is for people who want to enjoy netball but without the full physical exertions.

Walking Football

Monday:2-3pm & Thursday:6-7pm

Walking Football is, as the name suggests, a slower version of the beautiful game. If you can no longer manage a full game, are recovering from injury, or just want to improve your fitness and ball skills, then this is for you.
