Mixed netball on the go in Warwick

NETBALL CHAT WITH RENAE O'DEA

Mixed netball is in full action for Warwick, there are plenty of teams and a lot of keen players.

There is a completely different atmosphere in mixed netball and feels like you are playing in the backyard with your friends. It is relaxed, enjoyable and sometimes just hilarious with all the football passes you see. It's great to see mixed netball growing each year and its a good feeling that netball is a truly loved sport.

Change for 2017

PLAYERS and teams are slowly being announced for the new national league.

It will be strange not having Laura Geitz on the court but we do wish her all the best with her baby on the way. The Firebirds have already announced a 10-person squad with three outsiders starting with them. Next year will show a great change for more players getting the chance to be on the court.

I wish all the athletes the very best with the changes to come and look forward to watching it all on the big screen. 

Break from sport

WITH women's netball all finished for the season, this will be my final column.

It has been a very enjoyable time writing my column every week and I hope I have taught people a little about netball.

Next year, I'm hanging the boots up on playing and umpiring as my injuries are starting to get worse. Looking after myself for the next year is the aim so I can come back in full swing again. I hope everyone has a great off-season and look forward to reading all about cricket while I'm gone.
