If you're a man working in Parliament you have a whole range of sporting activities to take advantage of, whether its football, cricket or rugby– the list goes on. However, women in Parliament haven't enjoyed the same sporting tradition. But one Conservative MP is determined to change that by inviting women, and men, to take part in the new Parliamentary netball group.
Conservative MP for Gosport Caroline Dinenage has teamed up with Sport England and the Back to Netball campaign to offer weekly netball sessions for anyone working on the parliamentary estate. The sessions will offer a fun form of weekly exercise and all are welcome whether you're a netball pro or haven't played since school – all you need are a pair of trainers.
Yesterday Caroline explained why she's set up the group and this morning I watched the first session, a great success and well attended by MPs and researchers.
After a warm up and some basic drills Caroline played an excellent half as goal keeper before switching to shooter where she even scored. Labour's Luciana Berger was also on form as goal attack and was a force as centre.
