Young netballers attending a summer sports camp at Harrogate’s Ashville College have been put through their paces by an England U21 star.
Lydia Walker, a member of the Yorkshire Jets team who won her call up to the national squad last year, was the guest coach at “Netball Fever”, which was held at the independent school.
During her visit, Lydia, who hails from Huddersfield, demonstrated her skills to the girls, gave them tips on how to improve their own game and signed autographs and posed for photographs.
Anna Rakusen-Guy, Ashville Trading’s Events and Lettings Manager, said:
The summer sports camps are a regular feature at Ashville College, and always prove very popular.
Having Lydia spend a day with the girls was an added bonus. Her determination and hours of practise on the courts has led to her being chosen to play for England.
No doubt her presence will have given inspiration to those who have their sights set on playing netball at the highest level.
