I have been playing netball for 65yrs and coaching for 60yrs. I started netball in Maidenhead 41years ago with 32 players it has grown to 6o teams. Netball players ages from 14yr olds some are over 60yrs, but we all play together. I still sometimes play on a Friday Ladies morning if there short of a player and throughly enjoy it. I have coached all sorts of sports over the 25yrs working for the R.B.W.M. But netball is still my love of sport. In 2005 I was awarded an MBE for services to netball. I feel very honoured to be invited to be a Tourchbearer.
