What a year!

What a year 2020 has been! We haven’t been able to play half as much netball as we wanted to and have had to resort to seeing each other on weekly Zoom fitness sessions but we are happy that all our members have stayed healthy and happy throughout the year.

In the middle of December we held our AGM (online, of course!) followed by a Christmas Quiz. This was very different to previous years when were have been able to enjoy a Christmas party in person and enjoy celebrating the end of the year together.

We did keep to our AGM tradition of handing out awards to members who have shown outstanding commitment over the year. This year’s Award Winners were as follows:

Best Attendance – Jointly won by Lorna Rettig and Claudia Almer

Best Newcomer – Emily Bridgman

Quarantine Quizzer – Steffi Zinsser

Most Festive (for best fancy dress at the AGM) – Lyndsay Lomax

The Committee for 2021 was also announced:

President/Coach – Claudia Almer

Treasurer – Jess Brown

Secretary – Abby Clark / Emma Wickens

Event Co-ordinators – Lorna Rettig / Sarah Hannibal

Social Media – Lyndsay Lomax

Coach – Jess Van Rossum

Think Tank – Kim Weber

… And a huge thanks to Emma Schwarzwälder who did a fantastic job as part of the committee in 2020. Emma will be taking a break for netball as she recently became a mum to gorgeous baby Sophie!

Thank you to all our members for continuing to support us through a difficult year. However, it wasn’t all disappointing news as we have now found a permanent new home which we are excited to use once it is safe to do so.

Our Online Zoom fitness sessions will be restarting on 5th January 2021 at 8pm and members will receive the link to the Doodle to sign up over the next few days. Hope to see you there!

All the best for 2021 and we hope (really, really hope) to see you all on a netball court soon!
