Favourite memory of the Award:
I enjoyed how I was able to play my favourite sport in the tournament, playing against so many schools on the same day was a different experience for me because I haven’t done it before. However , bonding and socialising with my teammates and friends was the best part of it . This sport has helped me to improve in team work and my flexibility which I’m extremely grateful for.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
I had some difficulties playing non stop in the tournament with very little breaks in between because after 1 match I move on to the next one immediately. So this has made me fatigue while playing , I was afraid that I would let my team down. Moreover, my teammates and I felt that we didn’t have enough proper fitness to play in a very big netball tournament.
