Hooray England Netball have had restarting Walking Netball approved by the powers that be. We have for some time been allowed to meet outdoors and do exercises but not play a game. From now on we can play a game lasting not more than 30 minutes (outdoors only) and with no close marking, maintaining social distance, sanitising equipment and hands throughout the session. My ladies are cock a hoop. Our age range is about 60 to 80 but anyone can join even men! If you have never tried it and there is a group in your area I thoroughly recommend it not just for the exercise but for combatting loneliness and and mental health issues. Its inexpensive too.

Dd2 is an Umpire for the 'proper' game and is concerned about upholding the rules in a fast moving competitive game.

Much easier for oldies.grin

It will be trickier I would thought especially when the adrenaline gets going and people rush for the ball. Apparently they have to have 2 umpires per game.
