Growing up, I went to an all-girls school. Each term, different sports would be on offer and if you opted in to playing sport, you had to make a choice.
Often girls would switch from one sport to the other, but there was one term where you made a decision and stuck with it. When it came to term three and the choice between hockey and netball, it was very much an us vs them mentality.
I grew up loving hockey and hating netball. I thought it was boring, disliked the lack of contact and thought it was too girly.
