Calling netballers in Hanoi

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 9, 2009

The netballing Hanoi Oi's

The netballers of Hanoi, the Hanoi  Oi’s, welcome back everyone to another season of netball!! Special welcome to those who have registered interest and are coming out to give the Oi’s a go!

Trainings start this Wednesday evening (9th September) at the Australian Embassy at 6:30pm sharp!!

Not only do we have a fun training in store for you, but the Club is putting on beer and pizza for everyone afterwards! We’d love to catch up with you and if you’re new, it will be a great chance to meet you!

Please take note of the following:

The Hanoi Oi’s Netball Club is run by 3 Australians: Helen, Kylie and Katherine

Helen (AKA: The Terminator) is our extraordinary Fitness GURU! Helen starts our sessions with warm ups, cardio, fun (and not so fun) fitness drills and some pretty awesome ball activities! Rest assured knowing that Helen is a qualified Personal Fitness Trainer and will always love to help you out by answering any questions you have about getting the most out of our sessions or if you have any injuries. Helen has an amazing way of encouraging each person to absolutely push themselves to their individual level in a team environment, so please feel great about coming out at whatever fitness level you’re at!

Kylie and Katherine (K1 and K2) organize the netball side of things – from ball skills, to drills, to uniforms, to games, to tours and the admin side of things – and most importantly, the beer and pizza!

The September – December Season

This season we will continue shaking up trainings by having X-Training (in place of netball training) on the first Wednesday of each month at the Embassy. During these sessions, Helen runs a fabulous session which works the entire body! Sometimes it’s Boxercise, sometimes it’s circuit training, water aerobics, sandbags, tyres, logs…. You name it, we’re doing it! LOADS of fun and you can always bring out your non-netballer friends!

In November we are planning on hosting an international tournament with teams from the SE Asian region!! People who wish to be part of the touring team(s) should be aiming to come to trainings each week to form a real friendship and playing bond with others.

Now for the most exciting news for all our single ladies out there… the Vietnam Swans (AFL footballers – well, so they say) would like to have the occasional fitness session with us (I mean, who wouldn’t!!) Perhaps we can even train them in a few netball skills and have some mixed games too! Basically, they want to show us how macho they are and how much beer and pizza they can consume… they’ve got nothing girls!

So… we’re in store for a great season – especially considering that the weather can only get cooler as the season goes along!

One final word

The Hanoi Oi’s are all about having fun, learning and improving netball, enjoying taking our fitness to the next level and forming friendships! We don’t care if you haven’t played for 10 years, or at all! We’d love to see you out at trainings so we can enjoy all these things!!

Any questions at all, please just email back to or call Katherine on 0946 884 340.
