Pirates Train Penzance Netball Club

Members of the Cornish Pirate’ squad, namely Brett Beukeboom, Will Cargill, Tom Channon, Matt Evans and Alex O’Meara have this summer delivered fitness training sessions for Penzance Netball Club at Mounts Bay Academy.

Appreciating the response by the professional rugby players, Penzance Netball Club’s head coach, Stacey Gilbert, said:

We are extremely grateful for the commitment of the Cornish Pirates players for coming along on Tuesday evenings to run our pre-season fitness sessions. I think it is great to see 2 local sports teams coming together sharing similarities and knowledge from their respective sports.

Everyone associated with the club understand the work the Pirates do in the community. It is top class, professional quality and we are just so appreciative to have Will, Alex, Tom, Matt and Brett put us through our paces.

They have worked us hard using fitness sessions specific to netball, which will only be of benefit when the season arrives.

Penzance Netball club is based at Penwith College, Penzance, where their in-season training and home matches take place. Players of all ages and abilities are welcome.

The Club currently has 5 Senior teams, which play in the Cornwall Netball League (Divisions 1, 2 & 6) and several Junior teams (from U12 to U16), which play in the Junior League held in Truro.
