New Netball League coming to Eastleigh this Autumn

A new netball league is being set up in Eastleigh with a vow to get women off the couch and onto the court.

With the recent surge in popularity that netball has seen, due in part to July’s Netball World Cup, more and more people are getting back into netball for the first time since school.

Leagues4yourun sporting fun leagues across the UK, involving more than 3,100 players, and welcome players of all experience and fitness levels.

Emma Edmonds, League Development Officer, said their aim is to get more people back into sport. “We’re passionate about the benefits playing sport can bring to people’s lives,” she said.

The new Eastleigh league will start on the 7th of October, with the first week being a refresher session – perfect for those who haven’t played since school and would like a reminder of the rules. The league will take place at Wyvern College, on Monday evenings with 40 minute matches starting at 8pm.

Players can join as a team, small group of friends, or individually. Many Leagues4you teams are groups of like-minded people who were once strangers. The cost is £32 per team per match, less than £5 per player.
