Two young netball players have got together to arrange a charity tournament in Thetford this summer.
Emma Alison-Vije, 15, plays for Thetford netball club and Izzy Salawu, 14, plays for Norfolk United, while both represent their respective school A teams.
The girls have known each other for 11 years but now go to different schools, with Emma at Thetford Academy and Izzy at Wymondham College.
“We decided to organise this tournament as we wanted people who haven’t played since high school or people who don’t know what netball is about to play with their friends and have fun while raising money for good causes. We also wanted to share our love for netball and hopefully inspire people to play,” said Izzy,
The aim is to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Nelsons Journey, a local charity based in Norwich.
