England U21 and London Pulse netballer Kira Rothwell has shared the latest in a long line of netball innovations to keep training going.

The Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports with the aim of uniting the country and showing the power of sport to bring people together during isolation.
The UK-wide campaign will encourage families, sports clubs and schools to participate in a series of virtual sporting challenges – keep an eye on the England Netball Twitter account for some exciting announcements about our plans!
Whether working individually, roping in siblings or parents, or joining up with teammates via Zoom, netball continues across the length and breadth of the country.
Great effort by Ethan and Lucia from @GildedHollins! 👏 Loving the creativity for an agility ladder 🧦 (Sorry to whoever's in charge of washing! 😅)
Have you had a go at our #BeeAtHome challenges? 🤔
