Wife's looking to play netball, preferably among other English-speakers. 20 min radius of Valbonne area. Anyone know of any clubs?

Many thanks.

I know this is two years ago but did anything every come of it?  I played in the UK but have given up since coming to France as they don't play/have clubs.

Would be interested and can get to Mougins.

We have arranged the use of the outdoor netball/basktball court at Mougins School. The court is available to us any evening after school (4.30-ish onwards) or Wednesday afternoons. The school will lend us bibs if required and balls. Perhaps all those interested could give me a call on 06 32 82 22 91 and we could arrange to meet up somewhere to get to know each other and find a consensus on when would be the most convenient time to play. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Lisa

I'm doing my best to secure a venue. Will have details by Wednesday latest I hope. Most likely Mougins area.

Thanks to all who have shown an interest.

I would be up for a game or some refing, but have not found anywhere that has a court. The French don't play netball only basketball

I would be keen to play.I haven't played since I was in school, I was on the team and loved it.

Keep me updated.

Mougins is perfect for me....if you don't mind having someone who hasn't played in 20 years!

Well it's taken just 10 months to get enough people interested from my original posting! My kids are at school in Mougins, and the school might be able to let us have use of their facilities. It'll be outdoors though. I'll have an ask around and see what I can come up with... if, that is, Mougins is an acceptable location for the majority.

HiI am a keen netballer, played for years in New Zealand. Having just had a baby I'm a bit tied down at present but would be happy to get involved in the near future with playing and organising. I'm living in Nice. Keep me posted. JulieJulie

Well, that seems to be enough of us for a run about anyway and I'm sure we would pick up other people along the way.  It would be really great to get something going.

Good idea re. schools but do they have courts?  Not sure that the French play netball do they?  Anyone know?  Or anyone speak good enough French to ring a school and find out, or have/know anyone with kids at school?  I will try and speak to my neighbour.
