Over the years, Crazy Catch have been proud to support a number of leading figures in women’s sport as they seek to improve their skills and take their game to the next level. For #WSW15 we thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase their achievements and promote their upcoming events. It’s really good to see more support for women’s sport in the media with Sky Sports’ coverage of the Netball Superleague particularly impressive; however there is still a long way to go before coverage is on a par with that of prominent and fully professional men’s sports like Football and Rugby.
Hockey – Last year we filmed our “Not Giving In” video with Maddie Hinch … it now has over 12,500 hits and has prompted many other international teams to use the product in their training too. The saves that Maddie pulls off in the video are consistent with her form on the international stage where she is regarded as one of the best in the world.
Maddie and the rest of the GB team are currently heading to Valencia for the World League which forms part of the Olympic qualification process for Rio. We must also mention Sabbie Heesh, Leicester HC number 1 who has recently joined the GB centralised program… do check out how she faired against Georgina and Jenna AKA Team Trouble! (WATCH)
Netball – Netball is soaring in popularity, both in terms of participation and support for the England team and domestic netball games, which saw record attendances this year as Surrey Storm won the Superleague. Crazy Catch is a hugely popular training aid, with the unpredictable rebound providing challenge for players of all abilities. Sasha Corbin has used Crazy Catch in a few of her #solosessions videos which have been very popular and with the Netball World Cup coming up this August in Sydney – you will have to watch this space for some more exciting footage!
Football – The Women’s World Cup will begin very shortly in Canada and all England’s matches will be televised on the BBC. The Crazy Catches are used in training by the England Women especially the goalkeepers working under Lee Kendal and we have our fingers crossed and wish them well for the tournament 😉

Cricket – Women’s cricket last year offered its first set of professional contracts and we have previously worked with the likes of Jenny Gunn, Heather Knight and Charlotte Edwards who have done a great job in inspiring a new generation of girls taking up the sport with the Crazy Catch being a great fun product to improve your catching skills and reactions.
As well as that, we have leading female athletes in other sports – also using the product and we love to hear your stories too. You can tweet us @CrazyCatchUK or tag us in your videos and photos on Instagram with the same account name.
