Midland Mencap Netball Event


Midland Mencap Netball event
 
On Sunday the 22nd of March players gathered for Midland Mencap spring Netball event! The aim of this day was to give those that had played netball before the chance to improve their skills and those that hadn’t played before the opportunity to have a go.
The session included skills, drills and games. Everyone who took part showed a fantastic sporting ethos, encouraging and supporting other players while putting 100% effort into their own game.
There were improvements for player’s old and new and a special mention needs to go to Ann from the City of Birmingham Special Olympics who won player of the day. This was Ann’s first Netball session.
After the Netball everyone retreated to the studio for healthy drinks and snacks and to get to know everyone better. Well done to all those from Midland Mencap magic, Southfield netball club and City of Birmingham Special Olympics who took part in the day.
Our final thanks goes to all the ladies (Dayl, Dionne , Montana & Sandra) that volunteered their time on a Sunday afternoon to umpire, support and help all the players have such a positive netball experience. A special thanks must to Dionne for lending her considerable experience and ensuring everyone got involved with netball. Thank you so much from everyone who took part- we really appreciate it.
Midland Mencap will be holding another netball event in the summer. Please check our website in a few weeks for further details.
