As expected, Gretel was amazing with Briar today. Every drill, skill and tip that she gave was perfectly designed to help Briar’s game. Briar took everything on board and is already asking when she can train with Gretel again. Thanks to the team at Playbook and good luck to Gretel for the constellation cup. Love from Briar xx

Gretel was fantastic with Mhaya and her friend Ella. She was so willing to share her skills, knowledge and expertise. She interacted so well and was clearly motivated and loved what she was doing. The girls felt comfortable with her immediately after they got over the surprise and shock of a netball star they have admired for so long standing with them. :) This session was full of new drills and lots of fun. The girls could not wipe the smile from their faces all day. Gretel possesses all the attributes of a great coach and mentor. Thank you Gretel and all the best for the world cup.

My daughter Ava is 10 and had a great learning experience with Gretel. She showed her some great drills to practice her, ball skills, balance and shooting skills. She also showed her as a GA where to be on court and how to make herself available inside the shooting circle so her team mates would find it easier to pass to her. She was so encouraging and Ava learnt a great deal on how to improve her game. Thanks Gretel xx

How amazing is Gretel Tippett - she is such a star! Becky loved every single minute of her session with Gretel. Gretel was so kind and so down to earth. The skills and tips she gained in the coaching session will be most valuable! Thank you Gretel and for this amazing opportunity, Becky will remember this experience forever. #bestbirthdaypresentever!

Wow My 10 yr old daughter thoroughly enjoyed her experience with Gretel. Once my daughter got over being star struck lol it was business as normal like any other training session would go. Within the first 10mins Gretel already sense where her skill set level was at challenge her at times throughout the session where she believe my daughter could go. It was no walk in the park my daughter was being put through her paces and having fun along the way. I like to thank Playbook Coach for giving my daughter the opportunity to learn from the best definitely recommended Gretel for another session. Polite Professional and Courteous throughout the whole session my daughter confidence grew as it went on. So thank you Playbook Coach and Thank you Gretel for giving my daughter an experience she would never forget. 5 Star.
