Swindon Walking Netball is proving to be such a huge success, that England Netball is using the sessions to establish the rules when it is officially launched in early 2016. The women participating are fast becoming minor celebrities with film crews and some of England Netball’s top staff observing their games. Videos to follow…
New to Netball
In addition to the Swindon Vixens, the Disability Netball provision in Swindon was extended to Uplands School, with Kelly Morgan delivering Netball sessions in late September and October. Hopefully some of the older students will now go on to join the Vixens on a Friday evening.
At the beginning of October, Tracy Watt started an 8-week Netball project at Swindon College, funded by a successful Sportivate bid. The project targets U19s, one of England Netball’s priority age groups. At the end of the project we are hoping participants will either join SDNA Clubs or the This Girl Can sessions.
Well done to Emily McBride (Abbey Meads), Jo Souch (Abbey Meads), and Tara Ricks (Nationwide) who all recently passed their C award papers. Please support them as they continue to grow and improve as umpires.
Congratulations to Holly Fuller on being our first Facebook competition winner! Make sure you all follow Swindon Netball for more chances to win.
