Blockhouse Bay local Fiona Reid was part of a winning netball team – Glory Days - which competed in the recent World Masters Games.
The team’s ages ranged from 41 to 58 years and the rules required that teams competed in the age group of their youngest member. Although they had never played together as a team before, having only got together eight weeks prior to the first game, they quickly formed an effective competitive unit sharing the same goals of sportsmanship and fun.
After winning all their games their greatest experience was playing a team largely comprised of ex-Silver Ferns. In her wildest dreams, Fiona never thought she would be on court with some of her idols of the sport. Although team Glory Days certainly covered themselves with glory by winning gold in the 40+ Social Competitive Grade, forming gold plated friendships was the best result.
