Abby Miles has been selected to represent England Netball Nets U21 at the Indoor Netball World Cup 2019 in South Africa in August!
Abby made the long squad for the England Netball Nets along with 22 other girls back in February and has now made the final squad of 12 for the Indoor Netball World Cup 2019 after her hard work and determination to achieve this goal.
The Indoor Netball World Cup 2019 is due to take place 4th August – 10th August in Capetown, South Africa.
Training is going to commence every other weekend leading up to August and will sometimes take place on both Saturday and Sunday on one weekend. The team will be getting high quality coaching and S&C programmes to ensure they’re ready for the World Cup.
Abby said “I am really excited about my selection to represent my country in the sport I love. I’m looking forward to training with the squad leading up to the Indoor Netball World Cup and hopefully achieving a gold medal for England. I’m going to work hard and try and get a role of a captain/vice-captain. I’d like to thank Doing it For Dan for their financial support this year which has enabled me to pay for my England training, travel to and from training, provide me with great footwear and enable me to get quality S&C sessions”
Nets is a variation of netball that is fast, non-stop and very tactical. Although there are similarities with the rules of standard 7 a side netball, there are obviously a number of differences as well. The most obvious of these is that the game is played within an enclosed high tension cage, or ‘nets’
Abby was also selected to represent the England Netball Nets U21 squad in November. She played in the Redbull Switch Up tournament which took place at the Copperbox Arena, London.
