Fancy joining the staff netball team?

Do you want a fun way to exercise, have fun and meet friends and colleagues who work at the University? The why not join in with Aston University Staff Netball.

Starting from Thursday 7 October, a weekly staff netball session will take place in Gem Sports Hall from 12:30 - 13:30pm. Sessions are run by a fantastic qualified netball coach who will encourage you along and coach you as the weeks progress. 

Some participants have just completed 10 weeks staff Netball which was subsidised through the Well Being Group as part of our Active Aston campaign. This is what they have to say about staff netball: 

“It has been a fantastic way of meeting new people, refreshing old skills and challenging the body and mind – all in a lunchtime. It is something that I look forward to each week, and each session I have come away having learned a new technique from a fantastic coach. It is also a great networking opportunity and helps develop a sense of community at work. If you fancy a bit of friendly competition, exercise and fun, then sign up and enjoy.” Debbie Harrison (ABS)

“Netball is a great way to keep fit with friends and equally to meet new people you would otherwise not come into contact with at work! I had not played for many years but have found the group and the coach welcoming of all levels of ability. It’s great fun and the more the merrier!” Megan Hubbard (Learner Enhancement Team)

“Netball is the highlight of the week. We always have fun whilst playing and feels great to be exercising at work. It has given everyone the chance to meet other members of staff and it is open to all levels that’s what makes it enjoyable.” Jane Polhill (Graduate Advantage)

You don’t need to be an expert netballer and many participants haven’t played netball since school! So if you are interested in having fun, keeping fit and perhaps having something planned in each week that you really look forward to get in touch with Simon Foster for further information or to reserve your place: s.j.foster1@aston.ac.uk or ext 4630.
