Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles.

On Saturday (24th April) it had been exactly 400 days since Gloucestershire netball members had stepped foot on a netball court.

Across two venues – All Saints’ Academy in Cheltenham and St Peter’s School in Gloucester – 66 netballers took to court to participate in Return to Court sessions run by Gloucestershire Netball.  The coach lead sessions focused on fitness, injury prevention and fun!

There are four Return to Court sessions in total leading up to summer league which, this year, will be played under modified rules and be non-competitive to ensure covid compliancy.

In conjunction with getting players back on court, Gloucestershire Netball have launched their new website https://glos-netball.org.uk/ . The website has been designed to be informative for both current players and the netball workforce, and for those looking to join our sport.
