Corporate Games: Netball

Warwick has a netball team competing at The Corporate Games 2013:

netballA Staff & Postgrad netball team was set up earlier this year which attracted a number of people interested in playing. When the Corporate Games came up it was perfect timing to give the team a focus for training and to get involved. Katie Barlow, from the Student Admissions and Recruitment Office, who is on the team, said:

Several of the team have played previously but many only at school, now a distant memory! Our training is going pretty well and our confidence is growing. We had our first match a few weeks ago in the Warwick Active Netball Tournament and now have friendlys lined up with Coventry City Council and Lloyds this month before we hit the Games."

Apart from training once a week for netball, many of the team also use the facilities for other fitness classes such as spinning or aerobics. Katie adds:

Although we're entering a Women's only team into the Corporate Games, our training sessions on a Monday evening from 5.30 - 7pm are for Mixed netball and we'd welcome any new players, either male or female. So if you've never played and just want to try it out, haven't played since school or are just a netball fanatic desperate for more training/games please come and join us!
