Netball Courts: Top 5 in London


Read time 3 minutes 

Loads of us got up at silly o’clock in the morning to watch the England netball team’s historic triumph over world No. 1s Australia at the Commonwealth Games 2018. The Roses kept their composure to win 52-51 with the last shot of the match and take home the gold medal.

As well as being a thrilling game to watch, netball is also a great way to keep fit and meet new people. Why not take inspiration from the Roses and get back on the court, whether you’re part of a team or just fancy a casual game?
