Walking Netball
Rules Clarification

We have been fieldins some questions around the rules for Walking Netball as some of them differ slightly to normal netball rules.  The changes are simply to make the game more relevant for a wider variety of player skills and mobility.

Here are the basic rules...

  • No obstruction – you must be 0.9m from any player with the ball including when they step in

  • No contact with other players

  • No running or jumping – at  least 1 foot on the ground at all times

  • You can hold the ball for 4 seconds

  • A player may receive the ball with one foot grounded and then take TWO steps while in possession of the ball before it is thrown or shot. We have made a quick demonstration video of this here.

  • All other standard netball applies.

coming to mainpower stadium 2023

Pickleball is one of the world's fastest growing sports.  Incorporating aspects of tennis, badminton and table tennis it is easy to learn and suitable for a wide range of ages and skill levels.


We're looking to introduce a formal Pickleball programme to the North Canterbury community with social and competitive formats at MainPower Stadium starting early 2023.  Days and times will depend on court availability, but we'll try to offer daytime and evening options.  We'll supply all the gear - we just need the players!

We'd love to know what level of interest there is in the community as we start our planning.  So if you are keen to give Pickleball a try please email: tkean@sportstrust.org.nz


In the meantime if you are interested in giving Pickleball a try we have one net and four paddles available to hire right now.  You'll need to book a badminton court ($29 per hour) and mention to staff you want to play Pickleball so they can set up the net for you.

To book...
