BBC Sport - Women urged to return to netball
Women urged to return to netball
- From the section Get Inspired
Scottish netball fans have plenty to celebrate. The Scottish Thistles are taking part in the Commonwealth Games this year for the first time, and they have just qualified for the 2015 World Cup.
But while the Fifa World Cup, in a couple of weeks, might spark more football fans at local five-a-side pitches, can netball's success on the elite stage have a similar impact?
The sports governing body hopes so. It has just announced a Bounce Back to Netball campaign to get more women playing again. Louise Andrew reports.
If you would like to get back into netball or take up the sport for the first time, go to the BBC Get inspired netball page for more information.
