Welsh players support #WhiteCard

Share

Welsh Netball is proud to show its support for the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.

On 6 April 2019, International Day of Sport for Development and Peace was marked globally, with various events taking place.

In 2013, the UN General Assembly declared 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace – a decision that represented a historic step in recognising the transformative power of sport and its great potential in advancing positive social change.

The day is commemorated globally each year by international, regional and national sports and development organisations to honour the role that sport plays in society. Wales long squad players Suzy Drane, Kyra Jones and Nia Jones (pictured below) demonstrated their support ahead of training the other day.

#WhiteCard is the symbolic initiative to celebrate the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace 2019.
