Netball players selected by top clubs!
Congratulations to Sophie , Olivia and Daisy (in Form 4) on being picked by the Wasps U19s Netball Academy as well as to Evie (Form 2) and Milly (Form 3) who have been selected as part of the Loughborough Lightning U15 side.
Wasps and Loughborough Lightning are two of the ten teams that compete in the elite Netball Superleague, and the girls will now receive weekly training from the best of the clubs' coaches. They will also have opportunities to represent Wasps and Lightning over the year.
"It is brilliant to have Oakham netball players representing national club sides of this calibre,” said Director of Netball Mrs Lauren Nicholls, who also played for Loughborough Lightning, reaching the Grand Final in 2017 and 2018. “Playing for top netball clubs alongside national age group sides and School teams, really helps to broaden our players’ experiences, making them well-rounded young sportsmen and women with a wealth of expertise.”
Last term Oakham School welcomed Director of Netball at Wasps,Tamsin Greenway, to help coach the U14A and U19 netball teams in preparation for their matches at the National Netball Finals.
