Kimberley Gardner is Shooting Hoops!

Kimberley has recently started training every Sunday with the Demons, the state girls team in the Ivor Burge basketball competition. She has been chosen as a reserve to play in the national competition, to be played in Perth next year. This is especially exciting as Kimberly only started playing basketball in 2011.

Kimberley plays every Thursday night at Mt Barker in a mixed competition. While Kimberly's team is made up of all girls, they play and often win against teams of both boys and girls.
Kimberley was first introduced to basketball at a camp by two friends Jeremy and Joshua. To keep fit between games Kimberley walks, does aerobics and practices in her back yard. She says that the best thing about playing basketball is all the new people that she meets.

Kimberley is now starting to raise the $1,600 for her upcoming trip to Peth in February, if she is chosen, and is looking for possible fundraising ideas and/or sponsors.

Her mum says that everyone in the team describes her as 'effervescent'. Which, if you've met Kimberley, I'm sure you'll agree is very apt.

Her mum also said that moving into Strathalbyn and working with Community Living Australia has provided Kimberley with many great opportunities. She says that the whole family are very proud of her and what she has achieved.

When I asked Kimberley how much fun playing basketball was, she punched the air and shouted 'FUN'.

Go Kimberley!
