Netball Star at the Maccabiah Games 2022

fdu is proud to be sponsoring Jodie Bloom, a member of the Team Maccabi GB U18 netball squad taking part in the 21st Maccabiah Games in Israel, July 2022 – the largest Jewish international sports tournament.

The Maccabiah Games are now the third largest sporting event in the world, after the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games, taking place in Israel every four years. Last year’s Games were unfortunately delayed by a year due to the pandemic, so excitement is high for July 2022!

Jodie is training hard with her team in preparation for this year’s Maccabiah Games and will be keeping us up to date on her progress in the run up to the event. “I pushed myself to my limit in my latest session, despite feeling really tired beforehand, and actually felt a lot better afterwards! We only had 15 minutes of match play after 1 hour and 45 minutes of intense training and skill work and I felt that as a team we really worked for that enjoyment (although still tiring!) right at the end.”

Keep it up, Jodie – we look forward to your next update.
