A NETBALL club is urging women to rekindle their love of the game and return to the court for fun and fitness.

Team Bishop Netball Club will hold a Back to Netball session at King James Academy, in Bishop Auckland, on Monday, August 21, from 6.30pm to 8pm.

The club hopes to see new and returning players of all levels at the session, held as part of the Back to Netball nationwide scheme which aims to get women over 19 involved in team sport.

Training will cover basic fitness as well as passing, footwork, defending and match play skills with the aim of competing or simply having fun, keeping fit and socialising. Attendees will then be welcome to join the club and attend regular training at King James on Mondays, 7pm to 9pm.
