Alix would also love to give something back to the club that has invested so much time into her netball journey.

She was delighted to find that she could participate in her favourite past time – tennis!

When Stacey is not swinging a racquet, she enjoys the outdoors and spending time with family and friends. 

She joined the Harvest Festival as an ambassador for the Home Hill Tennis Association. Stacey sees this opportunity as a great way to build her skills in presenting and speaking to a much bigger audience.
