Whether you’re a star centre with a big heart like Sharon Strzelecki or talented one-handed shooter like Kath Day-Knight, these netball comps around Sydney will have you shouting “if you need!” There’s low-pressure social games for mixed teams that run year-round, and other more traditional competitions where you can get back into the thick of this non-contact (ahem, please) sport. They all require registration ahead of each season, but most are happy to help individuals join or form a team. So plan ahead, even if you’re shooting solo.
When you’ve fought through every quarter like the old Sydney Swifts, organise next week’s plays over a cup of the best coffee in the CBD. Or if the adrenaline is still pumping, keep the active adventure going at the city’s most elaborate indoor climbing centres, along Sydney’s best running routes or at the top kayaking spots.
