A new sporting craze is proving to be popular with netball players regardless of age or ability.
A free walking netball activity was on at the Macleay Netball Courts on Wednesday, February 12 as part of the Seniors Festival.
Netball NSW regional development manager Gill Cotter said the attendees enjoy getting together and connecting with one another, while also gaining benefits for their health and wellbeing.
A Netball NSW initiative, walking netball is a modified netball program that is played at a slower pace than the traditional netball game. It's designed and run so that anyone can play, regardless of age or fitness level.
It's hoped there will be enough interest in the sport to establish a permanent competition on Saturday afternoon in Kempsey.
Kim Jones was one of the participants on February 12 and said she enjoys playing netball and is part of the Golden Oldies team.
She said it's a great form of exercise for people and a way to meet people and make friends.
Kim wants to stay active for as long as she can and said it's important others do the same otherwise they'll "seize up".
