Rebecca is a 12 year old tennis player currently ranked 11 in the country in her age group. Aged 10, she won the national tour finals for her age group and last year she represented GB in two friendly matches.
She trains daily at the Delta in Swindon, and the funding from Doing it for Dan will help pay for her three individual lessons and 4 squad sessions a week, competition entry fees (which are extraordinarily high) and may help us do European competitions.
My name is Abby Miles and I am 19 years old and have played netball since the Age of 9.
I play Regional Level netball having just won the league and gaining promotion. I’ve also previously played in the National Performance League U19 for TeamBath.
I decided to trial for the England U21 Indoor Netball/Nets Team in February 2018 in Bristol and was then invited back for a second trial in Birmingham and was successfully selected as part of the U21 long squad.
I am currently training in Birmingham and working hard in gaining my place for final selections into the England U21 Squad who will be travelling to South Africa in 2019 to take part in the Indoor Netball/Nets World Cup.
I’m very grateful in receiving my grant which will help towards training, travel and equipment.
I endeavour to work very hard and fulfil my dream in playing for England.
