Next session planned for March
Men of all ages and abilities were welcomed into the world of netball recently at trials for the Island's very first all-male team.

Around twenty players turned up to try out, with more showing their interest online.
Player and netball umpire Michael Josem spoke to Rhian Evans:
Manx Netball Development Officer Claire Battye has plans to create a social league and national side.
