The Stevenage Storm Junior Netball Club, which opened its courts nearly a year ago, continues to drive forward from strength to strength.

The club was set up in partnership with the Stevenage School Sports Co-ordinator Partnership, Barclay School and Stevenage Borough Council.

It has enjoyed a year of growth which has enabled the club to establish a team of coaches to deliver quality sessions to the girls.

Head coach Julia Burrows said: "From a dedicated group of parents and netball players, we now have at least six qualified level one netball coaches, with another four of our members taking their qualifications over the next couple of weeks."
