Saturday 17th September saw the England Netball National Goalden Globe Awards take place in Leicester, a glitzy affair that brings the country's greatest volunteers together to celebrate and pay tribute to the time and effort they dedicate to netball.
President, Maureen Ball, Head Coach, Carole Titmuss and Young Volunteer 20 year old Charlotte Rose were more than delighted to receive the National Outstanding Netball Club of the Year presented to them by England Netball's Board member, Anita Navin for their complete commitment to the development of their 273 members, whether they're players, coaches, officials, volunteers or all of the above.
Carole states Turnford have qualified two new Level 1 coaches, two new Level 2 coaches and a Level 3 coach this year. Nine new umpires, including two B Award. Fourteen new first aiders and we have had 12 people attend a Safeguarding Course. It is not surprising that with all this expertise inhouse the club is extremely successful on the court, enjoying a wonderful 2010/11 season. The first team gained a place at play offs into the National League Division 2, finishing in a very credible fourth position. Another of our teams gained entry into the RCL Division 2 finishing in the top spot. The U14 and U16 teams won the regional league, giving them both entry into the National finals where the U14s picked up the National runners up level. She states that whilst she is extremely proud that Turnford gained this award, the Club will not rest on its laurels and will continue to maintain its high standard of volunteers.
