More than 70 girls from Bolton School and the surrounding area
are looking forward to the opportunity to learn from the very best
international netball players the country has ever produced, by
taking part in a one day roadshow.
The roadshow, which is run by Activate Sport, promises to be a
fun filled day covering every aspect of netball skills, where the
girls will benefit from expert tips and advice from international
netball stars. The coaching will be led by Tracey Neville, who
represented the country 74 times, including competing in the 1998
and 2002 Commonwealth Games, before an injury forced her out of the
game in 2004. Tracey, who is the twin sister of Phil Neville and
younger sister of Gary Neville, currently plays for Leeds Met
Carnegie in the British Super League, after being out injured for
Tracey came in to school on 20 October to promote the
International Netball Roadshow, along with current England squad
player Karen Atkinson, and former England Captain Olivia Murphy,
who are also involved in running the roadshow around the country.
More than 100 girls from the Girls' junior and senior schools
attended the lunchtime assembly to meet the ladies of England
Netball, and the response beat all expectations, with places on the
course soon filling up.
The International Netball Roadshow is a great opportunity for
young girls to get involved in Netball and receive some quality
coaching from ladies that have played at the highest level. It will
be held on Sunday 29 November at Leverhulme Pavilion.
Due to the fantastic response, the school also plan to host
a three day course in the February half term.
