Rosie Pretorius, Welsh Netball’s Head of Performance is excited about the squad’s trip to Blaenau Gwent. She said: “We are extremely excited to be taking the Wales squad to Ebbw Vale to face Team Bath on Saturday 18 November. We always receive a fantastic welcome at the Ebbw Vale Leisure Centre and we are hoping for a sell out crowd to really get behind our girls!”
She added: “This is an important game in the Welsh squads’ preparations for the Commonwealth Games with 6 lots of 15 minute quarters being played to work on new combinations. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to get the team out in the community to meet with their young fans who will have the opportunity to get autographs and photos with the Commonwealth Games long squad.”
The match is part of a month-long focus on netball across Wales. #NetballNovember seeks to highlight some of the great netball events that take place across Wales, at a range of ages and skill-levels. Welsh Netball is dedicated to increasing netball participation across the nation and believes passionately in the power of netball to tackle inactivity and promote a healthy lifestyle.
