Legends Netball Tournament for the Over 45's: Embracing the Game and Defying Age Limits

While some might think that competitive netball is reserved for younger players, there is a growing community of netball enthusiasts who are proving that age is just a number. Netball Legends Tournament was set up by a group of women all over the age of 45, who love playing high-level netball and aren’t ready to join the walking tournaments just yet!

Warriors entered our first Legends Team into the Sevenoaks Tournament held on the 14th April 24. The Tournament comprised of six (twenty-minute) games throughout the day. The level of play from all the teams was phenomenal, proving we oldies still have it!

Warriors walked away with one win, beaming smiles and made some new friends along the way.

Shout out to our Legends Claire, Kathryn, Kate, Jo, Sophie, Sarah, Caroline & Joanna. Bronwyn and Emma joined Team Warriors for the day from another team to help out with numbers and were amazing!

Finally, not forgetting our cheerleaders Kim and Elizabeth.

The icing on the cake came when Caroline won one of the prizes nominated by the umpires for championing the spirit of the day!

Having spent the day playing netball with some amazing women, all 45 years plus, is a testament to the sport's inclusivity and the enduring passion that many people have for the game. So, lace up your trainers, grab your bib, and join the growing community of netball enthusiasts who are defying age limits and embracing the joy of the game!
