Melbourne, Victoria Australia (PressExposure) October 12, 2011 -- Social netball is the most highly participated mixed-team sport anywhere across Australia and New Zealand. The 100 year old game of netball is all about strong team-work. Unlike basketball, where one super-star can lead the whole game, netball requires every team member to pull his or her own weight in order to win. This helps to strengthen bonds between friends, build new bonds between team members and foster trust across the entire team.
Add to this, the fact that mixed netball teams allow men and women to participate in a social netball competition and you also have a fun, non-threatening way to meet new people. This can be an excellent way to make friends, keep fit and be active all at the same time.
Melbourne Netball coordinates indoor and outdoor netball competitions for a multitude of different teams across various age groups.
Whether a team is a mixed team, ladies-only team or over 35s team, Melbourne Netball is keen to encourage entry for anyone who wishes to participate.
The coordinators behind Melbourne Netball are able to help individual members to join new teams if they dont have access to an entire team of their own. Likewise, theyre also able to provide highly skilled, qualified umpires to referee the games being played. Players wishing to become umpires can undertake umpire training, which is also available.
Corporate teams are also encouraged. Many businesses have recognized the benefits of encouraging staff to form teams and participate in the competition. This helps to build strong teamwork within staff groups, which translates over very positively into the corporate field.
For the past 16 years Melbourne Netball has dominated the social netball circuit, operating from 5 inner Melbourne locations, both indoor and outdoor.
