Netball player awarded

A keen netball enthusiast has been awarded Player’s Player of the Year by her teammates recently.


Jessica Elliot, who used to go to Treloweth Primary School, loves the sport and trains with the Cornwall netball team, Storm, as well as with her sister. She also has her sights set on being a member of the Duchy team.

Recently she was awarded the Players’ Player of the Year.

She said: “When we played tournaments my teammates and I picked a name for the Player’s Player of the Year and most people picked mine.

“I train for netball once a week. My oldest sister plays at Bath University so I train with her. I am focusing on my passing.

“I love netball. I love the movement and the rules of the game.”

At school, Jessica is an Anti-Bullying Ambassador and likes studying History and PE.

She said: “I like finding out what happened in the old days, the changes we have had and the accessibilities we have now.

“I like my role as an Anti-Bullying Ambassador because I wanted to help people. Sometimes it helps me too.”
