Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles.
On Saturday 29th July, 120 ladies from across Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Avon attended the Netball South West Walking Netball Festival at The University Arena, Plock Court, Gloucester.
Most teams entered the wiggle and giggle section where scores weren’t recorded – games were just played for fun in a safe and controlled environment. Swindon Steamers and Puffers were both in it to win it and they played the one competitive game of the day - well done to the Puffers for being crowned Walking Netball Champions!
In addition to the players, umpires and event staff, ITV West joined us to do a feature on Walking Netball in the run up to the Netball World Cup. They spoke to three ladies, all of whom had overcome adversity with the help of Walking Netball, and an England Netball staff member regarding the growing World Cup excitement.
Our next NSW Walking Netball Festival is on Sunday 29th October in Devon, contact: Jennifer.email@example.com to register your interest – we hope to see you there!
