Regular exercise is very important for a healthy lifestyle, but solo activities and pumping iron at the gym definitely isn’t for everyone. It can also be hard to maintain the motivation to workout on your own, especially if you’re a mum with a lot on your plate.
We’ve all been there, struggling (and failing) to force yourself out of bed or off the couch and into the gym. After all, there are so many good TV shows to binge at the moment, right?
If this is you, then our new ladies daytime netball program (which kicks off on 22 July) could be just what you’re looking for. Designed to be an inclusive environment that encourages women of all abilities to play on a casual basis, the aim is to encourage fitness and fun rather than intense competition.
Even better than that, with no pre-registration or season commitment required (and costing just $7.20 per session), it really is the perfect way to keep fit, socialise and make new friends. That way you don’t have to feel guilty if something comes up and you have to miss a week or two.
Got kids to look after? Not a problem! Just drop them off at the crèche when you come in. In fact, we’re so keen for you to experience our new ladies daytime netball program that, if you come down and play before 19 August, we’ll throw in a coffee and two crèche passes for free!

Five benefits of social netball
Want to learn more about the benefits of taking part? Just check out the rest of this blog to learn about five great benefits of social netball for mums.
Also, just to clarify, women that aren’t mothers are also very welcome! As long as you’re up for some netball, some fun and a bit of a laugh, we’d love to have you join in.
Playing netball is an amazing way to improve your overall fitness. You’re constantly challenged by the rules and working as a team around the court with lots of footwork, passing and jumping. It’s also a great way of improving hand-eye coordination (which can come in handy when you’re chasing small children around the house).
Because our daytime netball is more about fun and exercise than fierce competition, it’s the perfect way to meet new people and make friends. You also don’t need to be experienced or sporty to participate, so it’s accessible to a wide range of people. The most important thing is that you’re willing to have a go.
Exercise has been proven countless times as a way to successfully combat stress, depression and anxiety. The release of endorphins paired with the enjoyment of participating in a game with your friends is a great mid-week pick me up that will stimulate various feel-good hormones that will trickle down into other areas of your life.
As we become more health-conscious, it’s important that we balance our healthy diets with an enjoyable active lifestyle. It’s not enough just to wear activewear and drink protein shakes, you have to get out there and actually do some exercise as well!
Participating in social netball can help you build your confidence and develop a sense of belonging. This can lead to an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing.
Fitting exercise around your schedule
At Lord’s we understand that being a mum takes a lot of time and effort. That’s why we’ve designed our daytime netball program to be as flexible and accessible as possible.
Our crèche facility means that you’re able to participate even if you have to look after the kids. You don’t have to sign up to a long term commitment, which means that you’re free to attend as many or as few sessions as you like.
