In 2003 South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) grew concerned about the under-representation of women in sport across the district. Netball was identified as a sport most women would have taken part in as schoolgirls. It is an activity which champions social and physical benefits and enhances mental wellbeing.
Women try netball is for all women who:
- want to meet others in a fun and sociable environment
- enjoy team sports
- fancy trying something new
- love being outside in the fresh air
Each year we help establish new “women try” projects, which run for an initial five weeks with the opportunity of a further five sessions to support the long-term development of the group. A qualified netball coach runs the 1.5hour sessions, coaching, developing skills and teaching the rules through fun activities. Sessions are designed to suit all abilities - no previous netball experience or knowledge required.
Women's Netball League
The successful Try sessions led SCDC to identify a need for an "Adult-friendly netball league" to take place.
The 2016/17 league is running from October 2016 to March 2017. We have 15 teams taking part.
