In the run up to the World Cup in Liverpool in July, there was a lot of interest in previous World Cups (original called World Tournament then World Championships) and in particular the first held in Eastbourne in 1963, and players and officials who have participated in them.  A Media Call of these Legends was held in London on 14th June 2019 and the following photographs show many of those who could attend, including Pat Wells who participated in the 1963 First World Tournament in Eastbourne,  Sky TV interviewed several of those in attendance and the footage will be used at the Liverpool World Cup in July 2019, as well as reminisces captured by England Netball and GMSW (Give Me Sport Women)

  • Thank you Patti; amended now.

  • The second Pat Watson named is Pat Meadows, we were often mistaken for each other so you are not alone.
    But a lovely day catching up and seeing so many people from our past.

    By Pat Meadows (08/07/2019)
