Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles.
Falcon Netball Club from Redruth, Cornwall were very lucky that one of their players entered and won an amazing prize for a Netball Masterclass for 10 players from Sky VIP.
The players were collected by minibus on the morning of Friday 14th October and after a long 7-hour drive made it to Loughborough University’s Elite Athlete Hotel, where they were staying for the weekend.
Bright and early on Saturday morning the players were collected from the hotel and walked across campus to the David Wallace Building, home of Loughborough Lightning. They were met by Jess Shaw (Severn Stars), Kira Rothwell (Saracens Mavericks and Future Roses), and Taylor Mcevitt (Manchester Thunder and Future Roses), who spent the morning hosting an amazing coaching session. In the afternoon, Falcon Netball Club got to play a match against the Baby Catchers (a netball team of midwives from Sheffield who had also won the same prize) and got some tips from the pros!
On Sunday the players made the very long trip back home to Cornwall, most of them very tired and very achy! Overall they had a fantastic and truly memorable weekend thanks to Sky VIP. Now to put the coaching into action!
