Leeds Athletic West Yorkshire Superleague Seniors, played Alliance and won, thanks to Libby for coaching. Northern League played Brigg and with a cracking performance and a tough game, came away with a win to add to their unbeaten record. Senior Regional league played against Calderdale and won again! Great to see a few U16s taking to the court in seniors, especially where they are learning from some of our excellent seniors!
No junior fixtures over the half term period, although our U16s did well to beat a senior Calderdale team in a friendly. And just one fixture this weekend, for Prem against Oldham who have been regular premier 1 league champions in recent years. Unfortunately, we lost to Oldham who were very consistent and determined. Thanks to Francine for coaching and thanks to those younger athletes who came to watch!
NETBALL WORLD CUP
There is a competition you can engage in to design a mascot…..follow this link for instructions!
NETBALL PARTICIPATION, INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION, AND RHINOS
Incredible to see such figures where there are more than 130k more women playing netball or playing more netball since the Comm Gold 6 months ago. Great to see some of our athletes featured on the Look North and Rhinos TV coverage of the Rhinos Masterclass with Natalie Haythornthwaite. Here is one of the links for those not on social media https://youtu.be/NuWldJ27NCY . Great to see Rhinos going from strength to strength, with some great camps last week and a couple coming up this week. Monday’s fun camp is sold out, but there are a few spaces on the Mini Camp, so pass onto friends with younger kids! Plenty of our athletes are benefitting from the new programme there and our roll of honour to show who is in which bits of the pathway will be coming after half term. Hopefully some of you will have seen FastFive and are also buying tickets for the upcoming Internationals.
We have a few more injured athletes this week than last week, but hopefully some gradually returning to play. Get good advice and follow the advice in order to make a sustained recovery.
In a correction to an error on the previous update, we should have said good luck to both our National Academy athletes, Annie James and Georgia Pexton, who missed Club matches last weekend to train with England Roses National Academy Camp all weekend.
