Elite netballers to visit Bendigo on fitness trail

ELITE ANZ Championship netballers Sarah Wall and Sonia Mkoloma will be in Bendigo next week as part of a four-day road trip across regional Victoria.

The 2014 NSW Swifts team-mates will conduct NETFIT training sessions for several local clubs on Wednesday and Thursday at the Girton Grammar gym.

They will be joined by Australian 21-under team member Chloe Watson, who hails from Bendigo.

NETFIT sessions involve netball-specific moves and activities set to music and aim to improve skills and fitness and boost team-work.

They are the brainchild of Wall’s netball-based company, Jeanieboy.

The road trip starts in her home town of Camperdown on Monday, moving to Ballarat before arriving in Bendigo, where she is being hosted by the Bendigo Football Netball League.

NETFIT vacancies exist for the Wednesday 6pm-7pm session - email info@jeanieboy.com.au for details.

Mid-court star Wall has previously played for the Melbourne Vixens and Queensland Firebirds.

Defender Mkoloma, who parted ways with Swifts in June, represented England in 111 test matches.
