Media release: Moray Council selected for national netball pilot


MORAY Council has been selected as one of the first local authorities in Scotland to pilot walking netball.

Working in partnership with Netball Scotland, Moray Council’s sports development team will trial this new initiative in Forres from the start of September for five weeks.

A slower version of the game, which is suitable for all ages and abilities, walking netball is tailored to the needs of each participant. Newbies are welcome and a safe, comfortable and fun environment is guaranteed, as well as an outline of all the rules.

The hour-long sessions will run at Forres House Community Centre each Monday from September 4, starting at 9.30am. Joining in is free for Fit Life? members, or £3 a session for non-members.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
