In the week leading up to International Women’s Day, Welsh Netball was proud to be in attendance at the launch of ‘Watch Her Go,’ a new network and movement that aims to raise the profile and visibility of women’s sport in Wales.

Wales player Clare Jones added: “Huge thank you to Clare Balding for spending some quality time with Welsh Netball this evening! Here’s to women uniting in all areas of sport, focusing on a huge task ahead through and continuing to promote our much loved sports to the best of our abilities!”
