It might not be an Olympic sport, but netball is highly competitive in the Commonwealth Games and in the Swindon League.
Abbey Meads Netball Club has places for new players in their under 11, under 16 and adult teams.
The club began in 2004 when a group of women decided they wanted to get fit and have fun while exercising. Having grown steadily, the club currently has six teams in the Swindon League.
Their increasing numbers mean they have moved venue from Isambard School to Next Generation, with juniors’ practice taking place on Tuesdays from 6pm to 7pm and older teams from 7pm to 9.30pm.
Membership fees are £10 a month for under 18 and £11 a month for adults. Contact Lorraine Bulpitt on 07747 753212.
