SWAN Netball Club is trying to make sure everyone can have a go at the sport.

They are holding regular Inclusion Netball sessions at Lord Butler Fitness & Leisure Centre for those aged 16 and over, with any physical or learning disability.

And the next session takes place on Sunday May 19 (11am-12pm), run by inclusion specialist and coach Bernae Ellis with SWANs coach Samantha Todd-Wickens, using adapted equipment.

The first session is free and anyone wanting further information can contact Sam at stwnetball@gmail.com

SWANs is one of nine clubs from across the country selected to become an England Netball Core Inclusion Club and chair Paula Evans said: "SWANs already runs Walking Netball and Back to Netball sessions, as well as our Junior and Senior teams.
