Mamanet is a fun, social sports league for mothers started in Israel 14 years ago and has been growing phenomenally around the world. It is played in several cities in North America and we have now completed our third season in Columbus. The sport is Cachibol, also known as Newcomb, a variation of volleyball where players catch, pass and throw the ball using a regulation-size volleyball and court. Fun social events, team practices and games give women an opportunity to meet and bond with other women. Within the Mamanet community, women feel empowered and contribute their time and energy to meaningful projects that give back to their community.
