|How I started|
|Around the Academy:
Like most girls I started playing netball at school when I was seven years old.
Lots of primary schools play netball because it teaches different skills.
You learn about team-work, how to attack and defend as well as keeping yourself fit and healthy!
I quickly got hooked on the game and wanted to play outside of school hours too.
So I went along to my local club and decided to join up.
My skills began to improve with all the extra coaching and competitve action.
I was really excited to be chosen to play for my county, Derbyshire.
Eventually, I went on to play for my region and then finally I made it onto the England team!
