Netball Promoted at Corby Sports Event
Corby Borough Council and local sports clubs joined together to raise the profile of sports provision in the Corby area on the run up to the Olympics. Saturday 30th June saw a range of different sports (both Olympic and non Olympic) offer free ‘come and try’ activities, demonstrations and recruited new members to their clubs. Kelly Walker, Northamptonshire Netball Development Officer promoted ‘Back to Netball’ and advised about local opportunities to play netball. The Mayor of Corby, Councillor Mohammed Rahman , joined in the shooting practice and showed great enthusiasm for promoting sport in Corby. All participants who signed up were given a 'free' first session card and information on their local netball club. Kelly said 'It was a great day. We had a lot of interest from men who were keen to play mixed netball, but the focus was on Back to Netball and junior provision. Many women and girls took information and now we will hopefully see them at the sessions'.
