    £7 an hour to spend time with three internationals in the sport you love?

    Not going to mention the event, but wow, Sussex's female NETBALL folk are up in arms.

    Three NETBALL internationals are hosting a unique family (parent and child) event where 60 adults and 60 children get to spend seven hours being coached, socially interacting and playing in front of big names in their sport.

    The cost is £48 (including VAT) per person for seven hours venue hire, event staff, first aid, match officials, all the necessary equipment, athlete transportation , athlete time and all the promotional and administrative costs involved through work needed pre and post event. It is an event limited to six adult and six children squads spending seven hours event time with three elite athletes. This is not a tournament that has costs spread around dozens of teams or part of a larger sponsored multi-sport event…examples of which have been thrown in our direction, this will be an exclusive and unique once in a lifetime event giving you all the maximum possible time with the elite athletes.

    Reaction has been hostile to say the least...

    Think its too much?

      It's so vague it's hard to really form an opinion.

      It very much depends on the sport involved, and who these international 'stars' are.

      I don't want it to constitute advertising on a forum I respect the rules of.

      But imagine if it was a sport you loved? And one of the three was the captain of the national team?

      What are they up in arms about? The price? The concept? The timing? The structure? The competition?

      Or that they cannot afford it ?
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !
