Netball in the city

I've been playing netball for a long time now, since I was at school so perhaps since I was 11 and it's been one of those things I have picked up and put down depending on budget time etc. But every time I pick it up again I remember how much I enjoy it and why I have always played it. For those of you unfamiliar with netball try this wikipedia article as it's probably better at explaining it than me!

Anyway, the point of this is that when I first graduated from university I stopped playing and assumed that there would be no where in London to play, we always struggled to get courts as a university team so I assumed there really were none. Then I stumbled across an old friend from uni who was playing in Pimlico and she asked me to fill in for their team. Eventually I plucked up the courage to join a random team and it was one of the best decisions I made. I've met so many wonderful people, had such fun and it's a great way to exercise without needing too much motivation. The organisation who sort out all our matches are called One Netball and I would recommend anyone interested in joining in to contact them.

Moving on from netball I'm struggling hugely with motivation to go to the gym at the moment, even with my monthly membership knocking a hole in my current account once a month! So I was thinking that maybe I should look at joining something else like netball where I have more reason to go. Any ideas?

Crazy netball! :)

I thank you for your commnts. So, to clarify, if you were born Marie K and you married Mr. R, you're Marie R K? If it's Marie Kelly and Mr. Roberts, you became Marie Roberts Kelly?

I thought it was traditionally "hername-hisname" when hyphenating. Our "myname-hisname" does not sound nearly as nice as "hisname-myname".
