I was asked to orgranise and host a talk with Tamsin Greenway on behalf of Grangetown Netball Club. The event took place in the Legends Lounge at Middlesbrough FC and it was a huge success.
Thanks to a personal friendship over several years with Tamsin it was an amazing opportunity to be able to bring someone of her calibre and respect in the game to the area and MFC was a fantastic place to hold the evening.
Tamsin has played the sport for both club and country and was able to generously gave up some of her time ahead of her plans as Director of Netball for Wasps in Coventry ahead of their debut 2017 NSL season.
The night included stories on how she got started, her time at county level, Bath, those 7 seasons at Storm, her plans at Wasps and also how she saw the future of the game as it enters the new 4 year cycle.
My thanks to Tamsin, Gilbert and Netball UK for prizes on the evening and to Inkpad for the amazing pull-up that was signed at the end of the night - and a certain Aussie who text half way through to check things were going ok :)
Same time next year Grangetown - thanks for coming if you made it!
If you have a local club based in Teesside and were thinking of something similar please get in touch - I would love to be able to assist if needed as the Sport needs more awareness
