ALISON Holmes loves her netball.

And tomorrow she’ll get the opportunity to play and learn with two of Australia’s elite netballers, Karyn Howarth and Jo Curran.

The stars from the Melbourne Vixens – which is Alison’s favorite team in the national league – will be in Wangaratta to run a skills and training clinic for All Abilities players at the Barr Reserve in the morning from 11:30am-12:30pm.

The training session will be followed by a barbecue, where players, volunteers, coaches, family, carers and the junior netballers who have helped out with the All Abilities Netball competition are able to take part.

WNA has organised the event in conjunction with The Centre’s CARN (Centre Active Recreation Network) and Netball Victoria, and it will conclude what has been a fantastic third season in Wangaratta for All Abilities Netball, run in partnership with The Centre and the Wangaratta Netball Association (WNA).
