THE GO-TO GIRLS
The Netball Fun League Co-ordinators play a vital and important support role for us 48 weeks of the year. Looking after teams and queries. Assist in looking for new and stand-in/replacement players. Ensuring the Netball Fun League kit bags at venues are topped up with clean bibs/nail kits and ice-packs... all this and so much more!
Emma’s relationship with Netball Fun League goes way back to our beginnings in 2009 when she was in a team called Motley Crew (they weren’t that bad really). Her other key role is organising all the 60+ Umpires every week 48 weeks of the year, making sure EVERY match has 2 Umpires!
