I was really happy to see this article a few weeks back – Netball: The sport which is seeing a big boom in England, it is fantastic to hear, especially as my niece is an avid (and exceptionally good) netball player and which links nicely with what this post is all about! NETBALL!!!
Towards the end of 2017, I was extremely lucky to spend the entire weekend going back and forth to Stratford and the reason for that being I was attending various netball games and also a netball event day thanks to Vitality as part of their #WomenInSport campaign.
Watching the game on the Friday night, in the wonderful company of Tess, Laura and Lauren, was the first time I’d ever seen a proper netball game and I’ve never witnessed something so fast-paced and compelling I was soon sucked in by the excitement. Seeing the England Roses against the Malawi Queens was phenomenal.
