What can you expect from GRM Netball?
A bit about myself and why GRM has chosen to cover Netball.
I have played netball casually, on and off, since leaving school in 2012. Admittedly, I have only followed and supported the national England netball team within the last few years. (Yes, I wish I'd followed them for longer). My main sport as a child was in fact, gymnastics, so netball was pushed to a side slightly due to my commitments to my club. However, growing older within gymnastics is harder to carry on than in netball: so I reverted back!
I have been nagging Shawn, the founder of GRM, to incorporate netball for the past year. I have recognised that players and teams at grassroots level don't get the support and coverage they deserve. Whether you're an adult getting back into netball or competing for a successful team; even a child playing for fun, participating in tournaments or even competing nationally. Netball as a whole, in my opinion, is underappreciated and it always has been. I believe what GRM has executed within the rugby community at grassroots level, is exactly what lower level netball needs! Whoever you are, whatever level, you deserve recognition for talent, success and overall involvement.
What can you expect from GRM netball?
GRM netball will be following local Hull teams, children and adults, through their league games, back to netball leagues and tournaments. Similarly to rugby, we will be trying to cover as many teams as possible to showcase several different levelled players and squads.
We expect to create one cinematic video from recent games, weekly or possibly fortnightly depending on availability. Matches and tournaments can be requested to be filmed, we make our up most efforts to cater to everybody.
Social media! Admittedly, there is a strong 'rugby' following on our social sites but regular content from training sessions and matches will be posted, so keep an eye out and follow them all so you don't miss a thing! Our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter boast most of our small clips and photos from events and filming sessions. The GRM YouTube channel shows our unique, cinematic videos in full... subscribing is a must!
The netball community is a unique one!
