Netball players from all over central Scotland gathered at the Tryst Sports Centre recently to take part in one of four regional festivals.

The Bounce Back to Netball Regional Festive Festivals were hosted by Netball Scotland and more than 400 women took part throughout the country, including around 120 at the Tryst.

Teams from North and South Lanarkshire, Perth and Stirling participated in an event full of fun.

Bounce Back to Netball offers a non-competitive alternative to ‘club’ netball and as such there were prizes given for best dressed, best team selfie and best Christmas spirit. The festival was led by Netball Scotland regional development manager Lee Maclean, supported by a band of volunteers and with venue support from North Lanarkshire Leisure staff.

Bounce Back to Netball launched following the success of netball at the Commonwealth Games and aims to encourage people to return to or take up recreational netball. There are currently over 1000 members engaging in the programme nationally.
