Basketball & Netball
Basketball and netball are both fast-moving games that involve a lot of variety, stopping and starting. While they’re not renowned as aerobic sports, they provide great workouts that can help to burn calories, build endurance and improve coordination.
Brio Leisure has netball facilities across a number of our venues with many teams regularly practising and competing on our courts.Find your closest centre
