Celebrate Pride Month at Playnetball’s first ever LGBTQ+ Netball Night, Tuesday 29th June 2021
On Tuesday 29th June, to celebrate Pride Month, we’re hosting a special event open to anyone in the local LGBTQ+ community and their friends. If you’ve played before or even if you’re brand new to the game and have never felt comfortable in a sporting environment, we can promise you a massive, warm, Playnetball.com-style welcome!
The night will consist of a quick introduction to netball and its rules, followed by a warm-up, some training drills and then some short, fun match play. At the end, in true Playnetball-style, we’ll head to a local pub and try our best to be social whilst sticking to current Covid-19 restrictions.
If you’re already a player with Playnetball.com, we encourage you to come along and meet all the new arrivals, helping to create a safe and welcome environment. Numbers are limited, however, so new players will be given priority when it comes to court/game time.
Playnetball.com believe that all sport should be inclusive and that nobody should miss out simply because of who they are. We are committed to creating a sporting environment where LGBTQ+ players can feel safe and be themselves, free from prejudice and bias.
Playnetball.com leagues are a safe and inclusive space, that have enabled me to overcome my long-held apprehension of team sports. And my mental health and physical health, as well as my social life, have improved significantly.
