Jess and Nadine have joined the school netball team. It is a punishing training schedule: every morning at 6.45 am, and twice a week for over 3 hours at a time. Despite aching muscles they are managing to keep up the pace. There is no weekly competition like New Zealand, just the "nationals" coming up in April. Everything is full on until then.
The photo is of the netball team having some rare "down-time" when our girls invited them to our place for a pizza lunch.
Monday is a public holiday for Chinese New Year so they very much deserve a day off!


  1. Wow - awesome effort Jess and Dine - I imagine that all that training is hard work. The best thing will be that you will be ready to join the Silver Ferns on return!! It will be a great way to get to know the other girls in the team too - life long friendships are made that way. I think you are in the same team? That is great - enjoy!

  2. Yeah same from me girls. You are certainly putting in the hard slog but the Silver Ferns awaits!!!
