New netball league

Algarve residents took to the courts on April 17 to play in the inaugural match on the newly constructed netball courts at Browns Sports & Leisure Club in Vilamoura. 

The team of foreign residents played against visiting lawyers and accountants from the UK and although the locals were outplayed on the day, they hope that this could be the start of an amateur netball league in the Algarve.

Sandra Ray, the team coach, said: “Many of us haven’t played netball since we were at school but it was great to take part in the friendly game and we hope more people will come forward in the future to create a league.”

If you would like to play netball and take part in the new league, please call Browns for further information on 289 321 325 or alternatively email [email protected] Alternatively a free weekly training session is held on the municipal courts in Carvoeiro every Thursday from 6.30pm.
