2019 will see yBall enter into a new phase within it’s growth in this sport.

yBall for 2019 year has had more school enquiring in regards to the sport.

Just a few bits of feedback in regards to the sport.

Hi Vince,

Many thanks for your email in regards to feedback on how yBall is doing.

We’ve been using the kit throughout the year for our primary school aged children in the borough of Bolton and it has gone down really well.

It is very good for hand eye coordination skills for both our main stream children and some of our SEN children.

We’ve also used it for some of our high school SEN students and high school aged boys in our community groups who like the whistles they get when throwing the yBalls really hard!

Hope this helps and we will continue with it and strive for the uptake of YBall in the North West!

Many thanks for your support with this, Lynette.

Hi Jodie / Vince

Sorry for the late reply,

Thank you for your time when I visited.

I mentioned I would introduce you to Vincent the founder of YBall. Some of the girls really liked the activity and would be interested in setting up a team.

Kind regards

Peter Cleaver

Hey Vince!

it’s Anna from The Bishop of Winchester, i wanted to say that we ALL miss having Y-ball over at our school, it made our Thursdays so much fun, we wish you guys could come back, thank you so much for having us during those 2 years!

We’re doing fine, thanks for asking! we’ve all just started learning for our GCSE’s and I’m sure i speak for everyone when i say yBall would’ve been a great stress reliever.

Hi Vince,
I hope that all is well! I just wanted to send an email as we have just finished our first rotation of the children creating their own sport. The children loved the Yball week and virtually all had it up there as one of the highlights of the programme.
Many thanks,
Broadstone Middle school
Alex Doidge.

These are just a few of the comments, over this year. The new yBall tag of, MORE THAN A GAME is standing true to the sport.
