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!
Jo has been playing netball with us for 8 years. In fact her husband and 2 lads play regularly too it’s a real family affair! 2018 saw Jo progress into umpiring the sport too and under the mentorship of veteran Netball Fun League Umpire Tracie Hull is progressing nicely.
