The Lagos Fireballs

Anyone who was inspired by the shock victory of the English netball team at the Commonwealth games might want to consider dusting off their sports shoes and joining the Lagos Fireballs netball club.

The Lagos Fireballs

England beat Australia 52-51 to steal the gold medal from the home side, sealing an historic victory for the England Roses, the Fireballs celebrated that week by re-enacting the champion´s victory pile up! (see photo right).
The Lagos-based squad allows ladies of any age and with any ability to train with coach Sophie Lane and then have a great competitive match.
Secretary Charlie Milson explains; “Of course the majority of our members come from the UK and many have not played since school but rediscover the love of the game very quickly.
However, we love having people come along who have never played the sport before and they soon discover what a fast and exhilarating game it is.”
It´s not all hard work, however, as the girls always finish with a drink afterwards and it´s a great way to make new friends, have a night out and exercise at the same time.
So whether you live here, are on holiday or visiting then please check out our facebook page and come and join the fun! facebook.com/groups/netballinlagosalgarve/
