Some of my lady friends and I have started a social netball team. I didn't quite know what I was getting myself into... hey, I didn't even own running shoes!
We all turned up the first week full of nervous energy (and quietly shitting ourselves not only at the fear of being unfit, but of also having no recollection of the rules of the game!)
Ten minutes into the first game and we were all completely exhausted - but loving it. The rules came running straight back and so did the "obstruction, contact and stepping"!
I have to say though, I cannot believe at times how competitive and bitchy the other teams can get. We are literally just there to have fun, run around, socialise and exercise. However it seems it is a matter of life and death for some players on the teams we have played so far. I am amazed there aren't more injuries - touch wood.
Tomorrow I am definitely binging oranges for half time. It's game on for sure. Third week lucky - we may actually win this time...
