I sponsored Katt Ainsworth for 2 seasons as she played for Surrey Storm in the Superleague
I sponsored Surrey Storm’s Katt Garner during 2014-2016. This included 2 back-to-back Netball SuperLeague seasons Championship titles. She’s always demonstrated a huge love for the game and it has been amazing to play a small part of this.
Katt ‘retired’ from Storm after their 2 Super League titles in a row – however now continues playing for Prem 2 side Clan, a team including Storm’s Frankie Wells, Ex-Storm fave Danni Wates, Mavs Sophie D-L and their Head of Performance is Director of Netball at Mavs Kat Ratnapala
My debut season with Storm was 2014/15 and made more special as Storm won the title for the first time. I spoke to Katt a few days after the game to review the season
The sponsorship with Katt continued for a second season and she joined me to preview the annual Netball London Live event
For the 15/16 season Katt played a huge part of her time at Storm working alongside the newer members of Storm developing their skills. She did however spend time on court it was fantastic to see her on court as part of the final 55-53 win over Manchester Thunder at the Copperbox. It was amazing to spend time with the team afterwards celebrating the success after the game.
I spoke to Katt a few days afterwards to have a look back over the season and those 2 back-to-back titles.
What retirement?, when I needed an opinion on the Final 4 who did I call first – well maybe second, Newly married, still amazing
