Rhinos Netball NPL Squad 2022: Under-17s
Former clubs: Leeds Athletic Netball Club
Centre/wing attack Phoebe Turner makes the step up to Rhinos Netball’s Under-17s programme from the Under-15s.
After starting to play netball in primary school, Turner wanted to carry on playing and got involved in mini netball. She then joined Leeds Athletic to continue her development and said that her most memorable netball moment was coming back after the Covid lockdowns and playing for Athletic’s senior team. In 2021, she was selected for the West Yorkshire Academy Under-15s and impressed head coach Beccy Lewis enough to earn a place in the 2021/22 Rhinos Under-17s team.
Turner looks up to her coach at Leeds Athletic Anna Carter, but also aims to replicate the successes of Bath centre and England international Serena Guthrie.
She currently attends Woodhouse Grove high school.
