Vote for Surrey graduate to win netball award

Take five second to help one of our graduates win England Netball’s Goalden Globe Award. Economics alumna Hannah Rowell has been nominated for her volunteering work with Team Surrey Netball and Surrey Storm which competes in the Netball Superleague. The winner will be the volunteer with the most votes, so once you read more about Hannah’s great work, get voting!

Hannah with her regional award

Hannah has been closely involved with Surrey Storm netball for the last four seasons and has always encouraged as many people from the University team as possible to get involved. She has organised one of the most successful Guildford league seasons through her communication with teams and sourcing more qualified umpires.

Traditionally, university netball has always been seen as an elitist women’s sport but Hannah has completely changed the image of Team Surrey Netball and has been a key committee member, all while studying for her economics degree, which she finished this year. During her time at Surrey, she was the recipient of a Jim O’Neill Scholarship, awarded to talented economics undergraduates.

Hannah has already won the London and South East regional competition. To help her win the national award, follow the link below, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select ‘Hannah Rowell’. It is completely free, takes five seconds and no sign-up or registering is required: https://www.englandnetball.co.uk/make-the-game/goalden-globe-awards-2017/2017-sport-experience-young-volunteer-award

Please note that voting is limited to one per person and closes at 5pm on Thursday 24 August.

The annual Goalden Globes are run by England Netball and aim to recognise those in netball and local communities around the country who have significantly contributed to the running and maintenance of the sport.
