Walking Back - Lincolnshire Walking Netball Walking Netball was thriving pre Covid but many ladies were very nervous to return. Long term health conditions, reduced activity, anxiety, social exclusion had made it very hard for many ladies to have the confidence to leave the home let alone re-join an activity and mix with others whilst Covid was still present. The Tackling Inequalities Funded Walking Back project created a safe environment to support over 200 ladies back to physical activity.
