Teaming-Up Raises Women's Spirits
Three women have started a netball team after a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The aim of the Exeter Pink Hearts Ladies netball team is to have fun while improving fitness in a supportive and caring environment.
It was started by Rachel Ballamy, Louise Trout and Juliet Wayland.
Juliet, who is now Head Coach, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. She is still battling the disease and is finding playing and coaching netball is a huge help to her well-being. Juliet has been talking to our reporter Wendy Buckingham CLICK HERE
Team manager Louise Trout says the netball club is open to everyone, not just those who have been touched by cancer. Members range from 18 to 60s and there's no pressure to be a particularly skilled player. She says it's great for women to be part of a team CLICK HERE
The group meets at St Peter's School in Exeter. Rachel Ballamy says the real message is to have fun. CLICK HERE
