A PENARTH community netball team are appealing for new members ahead of a fundraiser to raise money for the development of the recently established team.
Pendragons Netball Team were set up three years ago but have been playing officially for the last couple of seasons, and were recently accepted in to the Cardiff Netball League.
To raise money for training costs and other purposes, members of the team have organised a pub quiz at The Old Penarthians Rugby Club on October 18.
Pendragons are currently climbing the places in Division 7 of the Cardiff League, with new coach Samantha Michael said to be making a real impression so far.
They previously trained at Ysgol Pen-y-Garth but now practice at Channel View Lesiure Centre after regular scheduling conflicts with league fixures.
Tickets for the fundraiser are priced at £5 per person, including food. Teams are limited to five members. Raffle prizes include hampers and champagne.
Local businesses, BLU Hairdesign, Lana Boutique and The Fig Tree have all donated already.
Other businesses wishing to get involved can email Pendragons at Pen_dragons@outlook.com
The team are also actively seeking sponsorship.
The first training session is free for those wishing to join the team.
Team member Janine Gimber said: “If you are interested in a new way to keep fit, to develop your skills, or to enter leagues in the future with us, new players are always welcome, of any ability.”
The team train on a Wednesday 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
