Netball and all that

Sport netted itself a new fan after great display of teamwork

On Sunday I found myself doing something a bit different, attending a netball match at Llanelli Leisure centre to support a family friend.

Now, I don’t know much about netball, to be honest. But what I discovered was a fantastic bunch of ladies, of all ages and abilities, taking part in a very competitive and sometimes quite dangerous sport.

The team work and training which must go into preparation of these matches must be quite intense, as they worked together to produce a thrilling afternoon of sport.

Even though the rain and wind outside was miserable, the atmosphere inside was electric. Supporters cheered on their teams and great fun was had by players and supporters alike.  The leisure centre was packed.

It was plain to see that teamwork and training had paid off for all the ladies involved. Thanks for the invitation, Iona Melrose, and well done to everyone who took part, I’m even thinking of looking for a netball evening class and dusting off my gym kit, so watch this space . . .
