announcement for the 2015 Tri-Nations Tournament.
HKNA is pleased to announce the 12
players who will be representing Hong Kong at the upcoming
2015 Tri-Nations Netball Tournament. The squad have
been preparing for the tournament since October and the
players have been working hard at training and combining
well together as a group.
From the 2014 NationalTeam that
competed in the Asian Netball Championships in Singapore,
six players were available for selections for this
tournament. So this has opened the door to
give opportunities for new players to step into the
team and also for the senior players to re-unit together and
perform in front of the home crowd.
We have a mixture of players with
various experience, background and playing styles.
During the limited number of sessions we have had together,
the players have really focused on working with each other
in units and also as a group. Knowing each other's
game, styles, strengths and able to challenge each other to
performance at their best.
