I was never a particularly ‘sporty’ kit, but I have always LOVED netball and have been involved in it for most of my life. I remember begging my mum to let me play when I was 5 or so.
At the moment I play twice a week and schedule the rest of my exercise around my games.
A social game of netball usually lasts for about 40 minutes, while a competitive league/association game lasts for an hour.
40 minutes of netball burns approx. 395 calories
60 minutes of netball burns approx. 593 calories
If you join a league/association, you have the added benefit of a training session at LEAST once a week!
Netball is great for cardiovascular fitness, reflexes, dexterity and socialising; if you haven’t played for a while or don’t have the time to train and commit to a highly competitive association game, join a social team at a gym or sportsclub nearby and play for fun.
