U17 Sponsor Thank you   01/03/2018

We had planned to have our thank you's published as our squad were heading off to Netball Europe but alas the weather took it's toil on this one! Nevertheless our appreciation for the work of our squad and the support from our sponsors is as big as ever,

Netball NI would like to take this opportunity to thank the squad members, management team and sponsors for their commitment and dedication to ensuring our athletes are prepared to perform at their best, at this, their first outing in the Green Dress!

We are delighted to say we have been able to secure support from both local and national businesses for this squad in partnerships that we hope will continue to develop in the future.

ActiveFeet Podiatry and Pizzarella are both Newtownabbey based businesses with links to our coaching team and athletes.

Virgin Media are a key supporter of the squad, recognising that age group squads are fundamental to the future success of Netball NI.

Conor Harrison; Regional Director for Network Expansion in Northern Ireland, commented;

“Virgin Media is currently expanding its ultrafast broadband network across Northern Ireland and we’re advocates of supporting local communities and sporting initiatives. We wish the U17 Northern Ireland Netball Squad the best of luck at Netball Europe 2018.”
