Walking Netball – fit for life

Walking Netball

Walking Netball in Darwin resumes from 10 June.
Walking Netball is part of our Fit for Life program, which encourages seniors to stay healthy, grow stronger and to improve their mobility, strength, flexibility and balance. 

Walking Netball is a health and well-being program which caters to all fitness levels. The program brought together a variety of low-intensity cardio, strength, balance, stretching and netball skills over 60-minute sessions, finishing with a game of Walking Netball.

Walking Netball is brought to you by Netball NT with the support of COTA NT. Everyone is welcome to enjoy Walking Netball again regardless of physical fitness, age or previous experience.

Benefits of Walking Netball

Walking Netball provides a fun, safe environment and encourages adults to have a more gradual introduction to physical activity by regaining necessary motor skills, helping balance, coordination, and better footwork. Other benefits include improved strength, flexibility and circulation, along with long-term fitness and weight maintenance benefits.

Walking Netball is also a fabulous opportunity to develop team spirit and encourages social interaction – it’s a great way to make friends or even spend time with old friends on a regular basis.


  • Do I have to register for each session?
    You only need to register once, before your first session.
  • Do I have to commit to the whole season?
    Just come to as many as you can!
  • Do I need medical clearance to be able to participate?
    No, there are no requirements outlining that you must receive medical clearance from a doctor to participate in the Walking Netball program. However, if you are unsure at all of your ability or capacity to participate, it is highly recommended that you consult your doctor for clearance before registration.
  • I have never played netball before. Is this for me?
    Yes, most definitely. Walking Netball can be played by anyone regardless of previous experience.
  • Am I too old to participate in the Walking Netball program?
    No, you are never too old! Walking Netball has been designed to be played at a slower pace which reduces the risk of injury and allows for players of all ability and skill levels to participate. There is no age maximum restricting players from participating, so it’s never too late to start.
