WHY choose net­ball as a sport? It is a fun and ac­tive sport. I ac­tu­ally think it is the best sport ever, but that’s prob­a­bly be­cause I’m a bit un­co­or­di­nated and can’t play any­thing else. What do you love most about net­ball? Ev­ery­thing. It is just a great sport to play. It is a lot of fun, it is a great way to meet new peo­ple and make new friends and a fan­tas­tic way to keep fit. What is the worst thing about net­ball? The uni­forms, haha. No, the in­juries. There are a lot of rolled or sprained an­kles and bro­ken fin­gers. Have you had any in­juries? I rolled my an­kle in the first cou­ple of min­utes of my first game this sea­son, but I sol­diered on and kept play­ing. Who is your net­ball hero? Prob­a­bly my mum. She used to play net­ball and in­spired me to play when I was young and showed me how fun it is. How long have you been play­ing net­ball? Around five years now, but I have only played two games for the Young Guns as I only moved to Port Dou­glas six weeks ago from Cairns. What is your ul­ti­mate goal in net­ball? I would like to be part of the Queens­land Firebirds some day. Most em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment on the court? When I was about 11 I fell over on the court and didn’t have my proper net­ball pants on and ev­ery­one saw my undies and to top it off I broke my fin­ger at the same time. Who is your favourite team­mate? Raini-Eve, Jade and Sa­van­nah be­cause they have all been re­ally nice and wel­com­ing and in­tro­duced me to the rest of the team. It has been a good way to start on the team with friends like them.
