Pilates Strengthening To Improve Your Netball Game!

Ready to experience the game-changing benefits of Pilates strengthening for netball? Incorporate Pilates into your training routine and watch as your performance on the court reaches new heights!

  1. Core Stability: Netball requires a strong and stable core for efficient movement, balance, and power generation. Pilates targets the deep core muscles, including the abdominals, obliques, and lower back, helping you develop the core strength needed to withstand the demands of the game. With a solid core foundation, you'll experience improved stability when pivoting, jumping, and making quick directional changes on the court.

  2. Flexibility and Range of Motion: Pilates emphasizes flexibility and mobility, which are essential for reaching, stretching, and manoeuvring around opponents during gameplay. By enhancing your flexibility, Pilates enables you to extend your reach for passes, intercept opponents' throws, and move with agility and grace across the court.

  3. Balance and Coordination: Netball requires precise footwork, quick reactions, and coordinated movements to outmanoeuvre opponents and maintain position on the court. Pilates exercises promote balance and coordination by challenging your body to move with control and precision. Improved balance and coordination translate directly to enhanced footwork, better court awareness, and sharper movements during gameplay.

  4. Injury Prevention: Pilates strengthens the muscles around the joints, improving stability and reducing the risk of common netball-related injuries, such as ankle sprains, knee strains, and lower back pain. By addressing muscular imbalances and promoting proper alignment, Pilates helps protect against injuries, allowing you to stay on the court and perform at your best.

Testimony - By Jo, former patient and now Pilates class member:

‘Since joining this Pilates group I have noticed it has improved the way I play netball. My balance, stability and core is now much stronger which enables me to get those shots in. I also feel I have more stamina and muscle strength in my legs which helps with interceptions and will hopefully prevent potential injuries in the future. I am 53 years old and intend to keep playing until I am at least 65 and feel confident I will be able to achieve this if I continue going to these Pilate classes’
