Default Need some help from the ladies

Any of you lovely bunch played Netball?

I'm playing tonight. Not through a great deal of choice but it's going to please the mrs.

Asked to play GK so I do less running around.

Any tips?

(Gents of the forum, please feel free to hurl abuse. I'm not proud right now. I need this help to remain competitive, and to win.)

Are you wearing the frilly little dress and knicker shorts so ensure you look a complete twat on a netball pitch?

haha!

I was allways goal keeper as I was tall (i grew early by 5th form I was average height but as an 11 year old I had a distinct advantage)and had shit hand eye coordination so was rubbish at scoring goals so was always put there. I vaguely remember jumping up and down and waving my arms frantically to try and defend the goal- I also remember playing for quite a good team so used to stand in my little half circle and chat alot- may have even done my nails once- god i hated school sports!

and you can bounce the ball once- good technique for getting the ball away. Netball really is shit!

Bounce the ball once? When passing or receiving or what?

Thanks KC

I might do, might try one of my Mrs ones on (she's a PE teacher so has loads...I've definitely spotted a pink one too...I'll put a pic on facebook so you can see)

When you get to my level of cynicism, jadedness and ennui with the world unless the reward includes lines of coke snorted from the boobs of midget porn stars; I don't even get a twinge

Really scamp- do you need to ask that question?

YOU can bounce the ball once so when YOU are passing. Obviously someone else can bounce it to you.

also physical contact isn't tolerated

Also, this is some slight retribution for spending two nights on the bounce at the Marines Club in the Seaview I think.

Still. I'm going to fill my boots with this favour.

We'll soon see about the contact, I'm here to push boundaries, not march them.

Couldn't see anything on Wikipedia about bounce passes, that's all.

**** it. I'm just going to stand in the semi-circle and cause a nuisance.
