HGS netball has been brilliant for both my kids. From improving their ball skills and learning to play as a team to having a great run around on a Sunday morning with lovely kids and great coaches, it is has been a fantastic experience for them. Amanda is an excellent coach - she makes the lessons fun and engaging for everyone, while ensuring they keep learning. The kids love her!
