Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information


A series of netball sessions is due to be held throughout September at several local schools – including Haringey 6th Form Centre, Northumberland Park Community School, Alexandra Park School, Gladesmore Community Centre, St Pauls and All Hallows Primary School.

The sessions form part of an initiative called ‘Back to Netball’ – spearheaded by England Netball with the expressed aim of ‘giving women of all ages the chance to return to netball for all sorts of reasons - whether to regain fitness, find the competitive spirit that has slipped away or to simply socialise with like-minded ladies.”

Back to Netball is a ten to twelve week, gentle re-introduction to the sport for adult women of all ages.

Sessions are coach led and will cover the basics of game from chest passes to foot work; these sessions cater for all abilities.

For your nearest session, visit England Netball (external site) or join England Netball at Wood Green Shopping Mall on 29 August 2011 to find out more information.

Alternatively you can contact Sasha Corbin, Netball Development Community Coach for Haringey on 07872407213.

I attended a meeting at the Harringay Club on Tuesday of which the organiser said:

"I feel that it is time for the people of east and west Haringey to get together as a community and look for ways in which we can give the young people of our borough hope for the future"

At that meeting I put forward the proposal that participating in sports teams is a practical and effective way to:

  • make friends with a similarly minded group of people
  • enjoy shared success
  • commiserate over lack of success
  • organise things together
  • enjoy yourself
  • keep fit and lose weight

So I would urge all those in N8 eligible to find a site in the East of the Borough and take part, it is to be hoped with a group of easterners.

I am only sorry that a blatant piece of gender stereotyping "England Netball's Back to Netball provides a gentle introduction to the sport for female players over sixteen years of age" prevents my participation
