Glasgow Life’s Get your Bib on Program and Netball Scotland’s Bounce Back to Netball Program have teamed up in Glasgow. Glasgow Life and Netball Scotland’s shared vision is to improve the health and well-being of the Scottish Public, making netball accessible to people of all ages and skill levels and to get as many people as possible back into Netball.
Glasgow Life Netball Development have worked to ensure that the Commonwealth Games legacy is carried forward in numerous programmes they deliver and as such, Glasgow netball has experienced a 43% increase in membership Post Games. With plenty of competitive Netball available at your fingertips in Glasgow, these programmes accommodate for the Social player. If you have never played netball before or if you haven’t played for a few years, this program is for you.
Glasgow Life currently run a Get your Bib on session which is open to all ages and abilities over the age of 16. This session is on the last Sunday of every month for 2 hours at a cost of £4.50. This session is ideal for beginners and netball newcomers. It provides a gentle introduction or re-introduction to the game in a friendly and social environment.
Glasgow Life and Netball Scotland have created a pathway whereby beginners and netball newcomers are encouraged to try a Get your Bib on Session to be acquainted or reacquainted with the rules through a fun session of Netball. Participants can then come along to a Netball Scotland Bounce Back to Netball Session (BBN). There are two sessions currently running in Glasgow with more starting up very soon. Keep an eye on the Netball Scotland Website for all of the details. These sessions are around £3 pay per play and on your second week of attendance you become a Social Member of Netball Scotland which provides you with the opportunity to attend any BBN session right across Scotland, you get an exclusive Get your Bib on and Bounce Back to Netball T-shirt, playing insurance, log in details for the members section of the Netball Scotland Website and a massive 30% discount on Gilbert merchandise. Membership is just £10!
Netball Scotland and Glasgow Life want as many people as possible to get back into Netball and we hope to see you at one of our sessions soon. Whether you have or have never played before, come along, no need to register, just rock up, get FIT and have FUN!
The next Get your Bib on Session is Sunday 22nd February at Glasgow Club Holyrood, 12 – 2pm.
