March21

18th Mar, 2021

So finally in the next few weeks netball will be gradually back! I cannot wait to get back on a court (albeit outside to begin with)
Still keeping up my running 5k three times a week and online fitness abs ball skills abs shooting in the garden but really can't wait to see my teams . Some rules still to follow though I cannot train with different clubs/ teams from different areas etc without having a couple days in between! 😩

Lock down in May 2020

20th May, 2020

Well the lockdown is still going on ! Still running every other day, training in my garden , shooting and now added a weights session and strength and conditioning session to my weekly fitness regime. The support I have have from my netball club has been awesome – we have weekly metafit sessions with one of the coaches and a social weekly Team quiz – quite amusing running around the house to try to find the most random kitchen utensil as one of the tasks! . However long this lockdown goes on I know I am keeping up with my fitness ready for next lot of trials! Keep safe x

Para deaf championship

24th Apr, 2020

Before lockdown back in feb I took part in the para deaf championships at Nottingham university. ( I am partially deaf in one ear) . We got a team together from various different clubs I play of have played with and other clubs in the region to make 1 team to take part . It's amazing how many netballer actually struggle with hearing problems even at the higher levels of netball. It was a fun day and was lead by one of my old county netball coaches! We won gold!!! And we made into the england netball magazine!

Weekend game

3rd Mar, 2020

Last weekend I had a East Midlands regional div1 game for Northants storm . The last two games in previous weeks I have not made the court so was itching to get on for this! And I did! I played wing attack and loved it! We won 77-31 in the end and everyone in the team had court time which is awesome! Just two more games on the season left to play in this league and hopefully then at the national premier league play offs if we are lucky!! We are currently 3rd in the league!! Wish us luck X
