Supporting local teams

“Thrilled to have sponsorship”

Operations manager at Rhondda Netball, Jody Barnes, said: “The Tonypandy under 11s are off to a flying start, with the under 13s team climbing further up the league table too. In fact, in a recent tournament with local primary schools within the Rhondda, our very own player, Mia Holt, was crowned ‘Player of the Tournament’.

“At Rhondda Netball, we house five netball teams covering Porth, YG Cymer, Ferndale, Treorchy and Tonypandy, and welcome up to 45 girls a week per team, who are eager to join in and build on their netball skills from as young as the age of nine.

“The support we receive, from organisations such as the Trade Centre Wales, is crucial to ensuring that our outreach to these aspirational young girls continues, giving them the guidance and coaching they deserve. The Tonypandy Netball Club is thrilled to have a sponsorship ahead of the season, and we look forward to wearing our new kits with pride!”

“Community clubs are vital”

Dan Burt, marketing assistant at The Trade Centre Wales, said: “We recognise the time taken by individuals to coach and mentor sporting clubs and are delighted to be sponsoring the Tonypandy Netball Club until 2018.

“Community clubs and projects are vital to the wellbeing, health and development of children, so it is great to partner with another local group who reach out to so many. We wish the Tonypandy teams the very best of luck in the coming season and hope to see a victory in their next tournament on 6th April.”
