Gungho are proud to sponsor local Netball Club – Weymouth Juniors. The team have recently been promoted to Division 1 of the local South & West Dorset Netball league. We wish these high performing athletes every success in their next round of matches and ambitions to achieve Premier Division status before the end of 2018!
Head Coach of Weymouth Juniors, Kelly Browne, says ‘netball as a sport is thriving, especially following the recent Gold for the English Roses at the Commonwealth Games – our girls live and breathe this sport, and we are keen to promote their development through the club, the England pathway, local fixtures and tournaments. With the Gungho sponsorship, the profile of the Junior squad has been raised, and this has really upped the girls game play!’
Each year Gungho chooses a local Dorset children’s sport team to sponsor, helping buying kit or equipment. Run by a dedicated team of volunteers, Weymouth Junior Netball squad were until recently without a local sponsor. Lucy Erskine, CEO of Gungho became involved with the game after her daughter got the bug for netball. Lucy says, ‘it’s great to see these girls looking so smart in their Gungho colours and a real privilege to be involved with helping out in a small way’.
