What a day for TFC Netball Club on Sunday! It really couldn’t get much bigger than this. Who could possibly be better to launch our eagerly awaited Youth Section than Tamsin Greenway? Not only is Tamsin the reigning and four times Super League champion, but she’s actually a former TFC player. She generously gave up her time to run a day of fantastic Masterclasses for us. Around 50 netball players were put through their paces in a series of drills, technical sessions and match play, assisted by TFC Head Coach and Mavericks VNSL player, Clare Drakeford. Our Premier League players also came along to support firstly the U12s and U14s, followed in the afternoon by the U16s and U19s. Even they were a little star struck! It was a day of amazing energy, enthusiasm and fantastic fun.
Players, parents and even Tamsin have been posting great, positive feedback on Twitter and Facebook.
“Spent such a lovely day back at my first ever club @TFCnetball running a masterclass for 50 ballers! They are back in Prem and are setting up a junior section and are looking for players. Check them out ☝?” @Tamsingreenway
“Fab masterclass this morning at @TFCnetball, excellent coaching by @tamsingreenway. Mathilda thoroughly enjoyed it.”
“Great experience thank you very much - 2 fired up daughters.”
Thanks must go to Uppingham Community College (UCC) for letting us use their superb facilities and to the dedicated TFC volunteer team who made the event such a success, from the planning, organisation and running it on the day. The fabulous raffle, ‘name the unicorn’ competition and delicious refreshments were a big hit and helped us enormously with our fundraising. All in all, a terrific team effort!
Our U16s and U19s start training for the forthcoming season in a couple of weeks at Catmose Sports Centre in Oakham. We are now recruiting our U12s and U14s to start training at UCC in Uppingham in October.
Look out for further Masterclasses and events by following us on Twitter @TFCNetball and Facebook @TFCNC (priority will be given to TFC Club members).
