Support Women in Sport and WIN Yourself Tickets To The Vitality Netball International Series!


Over the past couple of weeks, I've been enjoying reading blogs and Instagram posts from Georgina of Fitcetera, Tess of FitBits and Charlotte of Berice Baby chatting about taking part in a 'Women in Sport' campaign all about inspiring women to join team sports and the benefits this can bring to them.

One of the team sports that the ladies (I follow) haven't taken part in is netball. I'm not sure about anyone else's experience of netball in school but it wasn't as enjoyable for me as it really should have been! My main gripe used to be the fact that it was a winter sport, yet we were forced to wear shorts and a skirt. Made very little sense to me then, and even now... but I'm sure things have changed since then. My memories of actually playing though are great! I loved playing either GS (goal shooter) or GA (goal attack) mostly because I was pretty lazy and liked to just stay in that semi-circle where the goal was located!

Anyway, netball is a professional sport for women amongst quite a few others and England have their very own team incase you might not have been aware (I know I didn't know too much about them!) who are about to go head to head with Malawi for a dramatic three-match battle in the 2017 Vitality Netball International Series, sponsored by Go Girl. The matches are taking place in London (at the Copper Box Arena, no less) and Birmingham and Go Girl are offering 10 lucky entrants the chance to win a pair of tickets for the matches taking place on the 24th, 26th and 29th November

As for the team, aptly named The Roses squad, they're made up of:
Ama Agbeze (Capt.), Jade Clarke (Vice-Capt.), Eleanor Cardwell, Beth Cobden, Kadeen Corbin, Sasha Corbin, Rachel Dunn, Jodie Gibson, Natalie Haythornthwaite, Josie Huckle, Vicki Oyesola, Natalie Panagarry

And the full match schedule: 
England Roses v Malawi Queens, Friday 24th November, Copper Box Arena, 7.45pm 
England Roses v Malawi Queens, Sunday 26th November, Copper Box Arena, 2pm
England Roses v Malawi Queens, Wednesday 29th November, Genting Arena, 7:45pm

...So peeps, what better way to support women in sport than getting yourself a seat in the arena supporting these amazing women?! 

Do you follow any professional women's sports teams?!
