Commit to be Fit with Netball leagues

Commit to be Fit with Netball Leagues.

As the government announces its measures to combat the obesity epidemic in the UK, the nations largest provider of small sided football and netball leagues sent out a simple message to the people of Dudley: Get fit playing a game you love!

Government figures are stark. When Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, revealed his measures – including a ban on fast food advertising before 9pm and changes to food labelling - he laid out some jaw dropping statistics too, including that 8% of critically ill patients in intensive care units with the Covid-19 virus have been morbidly obese, compared with 2.9% of the general population.

This is on top of 876,000 hospital admissions in 2018/2019 having “obesity as the major factor”. Almost 40% of people between 25 and 34 were registered as overweight, a rate that has not decreased over the last decade, and is way ahead of most European countries.

So how can Netball Leagues help you? Research has shown that 30 minutes 6 a side can burn 400 calories and that players on average, run 3.24km in a match, plus the untold benefits to mental health that team sport can bring.

So what are you waiting for?! Sign up online today for FREE and play at The Dormston Centre when the league kicks off in September 2020 and get fit with Netball Leagues. Any queries before joining call Ashlee on 0333 123 2340 or email info@leisureleagues.net
