Community Netball 2022

Hope is Eternal. As long as we have Dreams we have Spirit. If we have Spirit, we Believe, when we believe we Achieve. 

 

Just as Lockdowns seem to conclude in England I decided to shift focus on an old hobby of mine - Netball. In a previous article i wrote and elaborated on how a group of Ladies came together to Celebrate Sport and Life in what we would call Community. Back in the day the only thing that could/would drive a village forward is people congregating for special events, in the street, on the green, at the school, at the church, at the village hall. 

As the saying goes old recipes stands the tests of time. Add a bit of icing to the cake and it tastes even better, some prefer no icing tho ha! By this I mean off course joining a Netball League which isn't to everyone's taste, but yes we did it!

From one to two to three teams now in the League. The Bomber Birds being the original team, first entered into the Market Rasen League with the help of Lisette Barnes. They played with so much passion, setting up a recipe, a principle, an example of staying strong in tough times, you cannot deny them. 

 

Soon lots of interest developed in competitive play and with alternating too many subs Lisette and I decided to splinter the team into two. It was tough decisions with so many strong players but eventually the second team was put together after the first season in the League. 

From the start The Dynamites have been very ambitious and set on their own course for success, led by Cally Littlewood, they made impact with professional bibs, team trophy, team building and plenty of practice. Currently their passion for the game paying off and they are doing marvellous in the League, well done Ladies! You inspire us. 

Christmas 2021 saw the Netball Community singing and dancing with a Michael Buble impersonator over a 3 course dinner at a popular nightclub in town. We shared Secret Santa gifts, a Netball Quiz, Cocktails and off course plenty of selfies. 

 

As hard as we partied we practice off course but over the winter period we have had to move Netball Practice to a Saturday because it was too dark to play in the evening on a Monday. Indoor practice is a tough gem to find with the remnants of Covid still lurking. Attendance dropped a bit but soon Ladies was showing up with their Children on a Saturday and numbers soon added up again for a fun family practice. From there I have had lovely responses to my previous article too, an interview printed in Townlands Magazine and plenty new faces was drawn into our fab Netball Community. 

This brought opportunity i thought for a 3rd team and so the GoalDiggers came to be, joining our 3rd Season of the League. This team is fresh, with Ladies that came together without any previous friendship ties, they are literally all from different parts, (of the world even) also some Ladies only coming to terms with the rules of the game now. Their camaraderie is so inspirational to me and proof that it doesn't matter how old you are or what you know or where you from. Take chances and take charge of your own destiny! Teamwork makes the dream work! GoalDiggers Team Captain Charms shared fabulous drills and helping us with great Umpiring. I am so excited to see this team grow in the League.

As I was writing this, we were looking forward to another Social Event, put forward to the Netball Community by Becky Wyatt from Umbrellas - we supported a Charity Ball for Families with Children with Additional Needs. This is a cause close to my own heart as I have a son whom is severely Autistic. I was so excited to see everyone's beautiful dresses and we danced the night away.

Our Netball Community truly is Awesome and I hope to write many more an adventures down here. We already planning a Bingo Pizza Takeover ha! 

Come and join in the Fun. Contact me on Facebook Eloise Rimmer if you want adding to our group!

 

 

 

Netball latest

Due to numbers and the need now for 2 courts and with lighter evenings, the Welton and Dunholme community netball group has changed time and venue to meet on Mondays 6.30pm at Welton St Mary’s school. All genders and all ages welcome for netball fun and exercise. Due to the cost of the venue there is a small charge of £2.

If anyone else is interested in joining please contact Eloise Rimmer on Facebook.

With the possible ending of after school netball and lunchtime social netball clubs due to netball being considered by schools as a winter sport, it is the perfect time for young school players not already in netball clubs to come along and join us to maintain their skills!!

The third team to be formed from this group, ‘Goaldiggers’ are now playing weekly in the Market Rasen League. The Bomber Birds and the Dynamites are venturing further afield to play in a tournament in South Yorkshire at the end of the month.

 

Congratulations to William Farr school teams on their results in the Lincoln and Gainsborough District School League.

Year 7’s – 2nd,   Year 8’s – 3rd,   Year 9’s-4th,   Year 10’s- 3rd and   Year 11’s – 5th

 

Elsewhere – the County and Regional leagues have almost concluded for this season. It seems to have been a long season with Covid absenteeism causing teams to miss matches, which have been unable to be replayed in some cases.

 

Well done to senior teams in Brigg and Sleaford clubs for retaining their places in respective Divisions in the East  Midlands leagues and good luck to Lincoln as they head to play-offs to retain theirs.

 

In the East Midland Junior league clubs from Lincs placed as follows:-

U14 Lincoln City 3rd U16 Brigg 4th

Brigg 4th Epworth 7th

Lincoln 8th

 

The Aspire Elite netball academy have recently been on a short tour to Switzerland, playing their national Open Age and U17 squads with success. The academy’s U12/U14 groups will be playing in the Leeds Rhinos Challenge Week-ender in Skegness in May.
