Ladies Preseason training starts July 9th, 7pm Garratt Green

Where: Garratt Green, Earlsfield, SW17 0JG

When: Tuesdays & Thursdays, July 9th onwards
Time: 7 pm

The ladies kicked off pre-season with a flying start last week with a fun training session to brush off the summer cobwebs! We welcomed back 26 current players and 10 new players giving us an amazing turn out of 36 women. After a bit of a run around to get our heart rates pumping, we began as we mean to go on this season with a structured warm up of dynamic stretching as a team. This was followed by a brief introduction of all coaches and captains as well as an overview of the next few weeks of preseason.

New players joined forces with the old timers to play rugby netball for a few intense and competitive games that all were able to get stuck into, contact wasn’t strictly allowed but we are rugby players after all… From here we developed some basic skills, focusing on passing and catching accurately and upping levels of communication when running onto the ball. Even completely new players were able to get involved and by the end of the session knew to run forwards and pass backwards – so a good start to their rugby careers! We then took these skills into a more game like situation of touch with ever increasing intensity and coaches were pleased to see the progression from the start of training to the end with amazingly few dropped balls and a lot of energy!

Everyone finished up with smiles on their faces during the cool down, chatting away to new friends and old.

If you fancy joining us now is the time to get in touch. Contact Fiona at: or pop down on Thursdays to Garratt Green in Earlsfield for 7pm pre season.
