Meet The Squad: Ellie, Content Translator

Category : Blog

Our team here at Net World Sports are the lifeblood of the business, without them we wouldn’t be the operation we are today. Our office and warehouse are buzzing with really great people, so we thought it was about time you meet the team…

 
We’re all about celebrating the amazing work our team does here and as we reach a massive milestone in Net World Sports’ history, having reached 100 members of staff, we thought what better way to mark the occasion than getting to know a bit more about what our team think of us! So, without further ado, meet Ellie, our first ever Content Translator who only started with us two and a half months ago… 
 

 
Hi Ellie! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to chat. So, let’s start with the basics, as Cilla Black once said, ‘what’s your name and where do you come from’?
Ellie: If we’re being formal, my name’s Elinor Dolphin, but everyone just calls me Ellie I’m 23 and from Shrewsbury, about a 30 minute drive from Wrexham, so as commutes go it’s not bad at all!
 
As the first Content Translator to join the business, what do you tend to get up to day-to-day?
Ellie: I spend most of my time with the rest of the Content Team, translating product listings and other content into French and Spanish for Amazon, eBay and our country specific websites. I’m really lucky to be able to work with a lot of different people throughout the business though, as and when they are in need of some translation help! With the launch of our new French and Spanish websites I’ve been helping out in our Customer Care team, speaking to customers and answering their queries about products and orders.
 

 
So, what made you first decide to apply for the job with us?
Ellie: After I graduated from the University of Bristol this year, having studied French and Spanish, I didn’t really think I’d find anything that would give me the opportunity to keep using my languages. However, when I saw that Net World Sports was looking for Content Translators I was immediately interested and after doing a bit of research about the company, I was sold!
The chance to join a growing and emerging business was something that really appealed to me; I expected that there would be a lot of room for personal development, and from a translating point of view, I knew that there would be a lot of exciting work for me to get stuck into – and I certainly haven’t been disappointed!
 
Let’s rewind a bit then… how was the interview process?
Ellie: I found that the whole interview process was so smooth and easy. After applying online in the summer, I came into the office for an interview which was super relaxed and comfortable. We got carried away chatting about my weird previous jobs (I won’t go into detail) and just remembered to talk about my qualifications at the very end!
I then came in for a trial day where I met everyone on the team and translated the listings for some of Net World Sports’ famous FORZA goals. I really enjoyed my day and went away with a greater desire to join the team.
 
You’re still quite new to the role… how have you found you first couple of months here?
Ellie: My first few months at the company have gone by so quickly and I’ve constantly felt supported, comfortable and welcomed. Throughout my time here, I’ve had regular meetings where I’ve been able to ask questions and discuss how I’m getting on. Also, the fact that everyone is so friendly and approachable means that I know I can ask anyone for help or advice if I’m unsure about anything. Thanks to the camaraderie and support of the whole team, there hasn’t been a second of my time here when I’ve felt unsure or confused.
In the short time I’ve been here I feel like I have been involved in, and achieved, a lot! As Content Translator, the launch of our new French and Spanish websites have been very exciting and it’s great to know that my contribution has been important.
I’m constantly given new challenges to take on, as well the expertise to be successful and throughout these tasks my own personal development has always been a priority.
 

 
As you know having done it, we always get new starters here to do a ‘meet and greet’ with all the team, regardless of which department they’re joining. What did you think of this on your first day?
Ellie: I really enjoyed the meet and greet as it helped me settle in to life at Net World Sports straight away and meant I was familiar with everyone from my first day at work. Although I am terrible with names (aren’t we all?!), I felt like I’d really got to know something about everyone and understood their role in the business.
 
What, do you think, makes Net World Sports a great place to work then?
Ellie: Net World Sports is a great place to work because of the people here – everyone is friendly, warm and helpful. The fact that the ‘meet and greet’ forms the main part of your first day is proof of why Net World Sports is great – making you feel like part of the team from the get-go is the top priority!
I love that I get to do very varied work – from one day to next I could be translating product listings, chatting to customers or drafting emails. I know it’s cliché to say, but honestly, no two days are the same. As the business is continually expanding, you never know what new projects could come your way.
 
If you had to pick three of your favourite things about working here, what would they be and why?
Ellie: This is a tricky one, there’s too many! Okay, where to start… one of my absolute favourite things about working at Net World Sports is the office atmosphere which is constantly relaxed and fun. Of course, we work hard, but we do it with the radio playing and a cup of tea.
This laid-back office atmosphere is added to by constant celebrations! Birthdays, driving tests, new homes, we love to celebrate with a card and a piece of cake no less…
I know I’ve already mentioned it, but the people that make up Net World Sports are another reason why I love working here. Everyone is so warm and friendly, you’re welcomed into the team from the minute you step through the door.
 

 
If people are looking to apply for a role here, perhaps for our Content Translator vacancies, what advice would you give them?
Ellie: I would say that it’s important to show enthusiasm for the job you’re applying for. I think I was successful because I made it clear that I loved what I do and showed I was excited about the opportunity to be able to join Net World Sports.
It’s such a friendly company that takes an interest in you personally, so also make sure you show why you would be a great person to work along.
 
Last but not least, everyone’s favourite question… if you were a piece of Net World Sports equipment, what would you be and why?!
Ellie: I’m not the loudest character, so I would like to think I quietly get my work done, similar to a Net Clip inconspicuously holding a football goal and net together!
We have so many variations of clips that can be used across our whole range of products which I think could reflect the diverse work I get to do – as Content Translator, I get to help out wherever I am needed, in all areas of the business.
 
What an answer, we’d definitely vouch for you there Ellie! Thanks for catching up with us today, we’ve loved hearing what you think about us.
 

If this story has inspired you to join our fantastic team, we have some fantastic German and Italian Content Translator vacancies at the moment… could you be the new Ellie? Apply online here or email our HR team at hr@networldsports.com.

Knockout Two Days At SALTEX

Tags :

Category : Blog

Our debut appearance at SALTEX proved to be a hit with clubs, schools and groundsmen alike as we weighed-in at the trade show for the very first time with boxing, booze and the world’s best football goals…

 
125 speakers, 300 exhibitors and over 8,500 visitors graced the NEC in Birmingham for the 73rd Sports, Amenities and Landscaping Trade Exhibition on Wednesday 31st October – Thursday 1st November and we were lucky enough to be a part of the two-day event!  
 
Having become a leading retailer within the sports equipment industry, supplying the likes of Manchester United’s AON Complex with exclusive FORZA Football Goals and Manchester City’s first team training pitch with custom made team shelters, we took the plunge to make our debut at SALTEX and it definitely did not disappoint!
 

 
Not one to do things by halves, of course we wanted to make an impact and the introduction of our branded boxing machine certainly packed a punch with the crowds! Thousands of people flocked to our stand over the two days to take on the challenge and there were a few tough acts to follow, but our overall champion of SALTEX scored a whopping 946, beating a 12-hour long record of 943.
 
It wasn’t just the boxing machine that caught people’s attention though. With a replica FORZA Alu110 Football Goal set up on our stand, along with our brand-new FORZA Mini Target Goal and an array of equipment from all our different sport’s ranges, we had top premier league football clubs, groundsmen, greenkeepers and school estate mangers all stopping to have a chat about what we can do for them. Also a massive thank you to the idverde team for allowing us to install our full size FORZA Alu110 Football Goal and Stop That Ball™ Ball Stop System on their Mixto hybrid turf system outside the show.
 
The whole Net World Sports’ squad had a great two days meeting everyone and it was a brilliant team effort by everyone involved! The show was so successful we are already looking into exhibiting at next year’s show… watch this space.
 

If you were interested in any of our equipment and would like to discuss your requirements, just get in touch with a member of our friendly Inbound team on +44 (0)1691 683 807 or email sales@networldsports.com.

Shaun Rowley’s Top Training Drills For Goalkeepers

Tags :

Category : Blog

With Premier League goalkeepers on course for a record breaking 2018/19 season, FORZA Ambassador and F.C Halifax Town’s last line of defence, Shaun Rowley, talks us through his favourite drills…

 
The Premier League recently revealed that goalkeepers are on course to make the most penalty saves ever in a single season. With a save rate of 35.7% when the report was issued, the year’s campaign is set to overtake the 2017/18 penalty save percentage, when 21 out of the 80 spot-kicks taken were denied by the men ‘between the sticks’.
 
This calibre of skill doesn’t just come naturally though, goalkeepers need to train for all kinds of eventualities, from 30-yard screamers to dreaded shootouts and everything in between.  With this in mind our good friend and current FORZA brand ambassador, Shaun Rowley, has given us his top five favourite drills when it comes to all things goalkeeping. If you’re looking to become the next David de Gea or Petr Čech, keep reading!
 

 
1. Move Back to Set and Save…
“Any drill with a backward movement before a save is important because it gets you into the routine of setting whilst keeping your weight forward to save the ball. If you don’t practice readjusting your body weight whilst going backwards, any save you do make will take the ball backwards too, ultimately allowing the ball to go in… it’s a bad habit! This drill is designed to stop you doing just that and focuses on staying forward after the initial movement.”
 
2. Kicking…
“Kicking is a huge part of a goalkeeper’s game. A really simple exercise is to have two players and a goalkeeper in a triangle which gradually gets larger until two players are either side of the halfway line and the keeper is at the edge of the box. This allows you to work on all types of kicks; one and two touches when the triangle is tight, and clips and drives when the distance increases. When the triangle is at its biggest you can also try side volleys and big deal ball strikes too!”
 
3. Short Dives…
“I really like short dive drills as part of a warm up to make me feel sharp and ‘hit the deck’. All you need is one goalkeeper working, a ‘server’ and two cones set four-yards apart from each other. The server shouts a side to make the initial movement and then serves the ball for a little collapse dive either on the floor or mid-range height. It’s important to turn your head and see the ball after touching the cone and keep your hands in view to go straight to the ball.”
 

 
4. Keeper Wars…
“This is probably my favourite drill and a lot of other keepers would agree too – it’s competitive, fun and realistic. With two goals 18-yards apart, you can go as pairs defending one goal (so two vs two) or on your own. With this drill you’re able to restrict the conditions, so you could decide it’s only going to be a set serve for one game or a one touch rebound, and you can also incorporate mannequins as obstacles to make it harder!”
 
5. Unsighted Shots and Deflections…
“This is a good drill to practice as it’s something that happens so often in match play – you think a shot is uncomfortable and then at the last second it takes a deflection or a defender dangles a leg at it and the ball loops. For this drill a server would be at the edge of the box and you’d have mannequins, cones and any other training equipment to make the ball go ‘off-piste’. When the server kicks or throws the ball, focus on reacting and staying tall, you don’t want to go down too early and you always need to expect a deflection to happen – if it doesn’t, then focus on catching the ball cleanly and safely.”
 

 
So, there we have it, Shaun’s top drills that’ll get you making record breaking saves this season. If you want to find out more about Shaun take a look at him and our other ambassadors here.

Review: Vermont Lunar and Vermont Archon Tennis Rackets

Tags :

Category : Blog

With the introduction of our brand-new Vermont Tennis Rackets earlier this year, tennis aficionado, Peter Fryer, put the range to the test with his independent review of the Lunar and Archon…

 
What do you look for in a good tennis racket? Do you buy based on big name brands or is it heritage and history? Would you ever consider a racket from a new, budding brand? Vermont by Net World Sports have designed and manufactured a new range of tennis rackets for all players – perhaps they could surprise you…
 

 
Vermont Lunar Tennis Racket
 
Light And Manoeuvrable
For an intermediate player perfecting technique, the Vermont Lunar is light and manoeuvrable, weighing 280g unstrung. I played practice sets with the racket and found it never let me down, it moves through the air flawlessly.
 

 
Solid With Volleys
I also coached with the Vermont Lunar and it proved to be solid with volleys and reaction shots at the net. I was actually quite surprised just how much this racket grew on me! Easy to use and not too heavy, power and control is no problem for the Lunar.
 
Shock Absorbing
With a racket headsize of 100sq inches, the Vermont Lunar is made from graphic composite and has all the shock absorbing capabilities of performance rackets. It’d make the perfect pairing for any club player or junior player in the process of progressing to a full-size racket.
 

 
 
Vermont Archon Tennis Racket
 
Well Built
The Vermont Archon is a really well-built racket; the ball leaves the strings crisply and doesn’t twist under contact. The frame is made from graphite which is great for transferring energy, not to mention super for shock absorption too. Transferring from forehand to backhand, the baseline groundstrokes feel powerful and it has amble power when taking big cuts at the ball.
 

 
Powerful On The Serve
Powerful on the serve, it’s very easy to swing and contact the ball using the Vermont Archon Tennis Racket. I found it really easy to generate spin with the open 16 x 19 string pattern and always seemed to hit the sweet spot. When it comes to volleys, at the net they’re extremely comfortable and even off centre they’re satisfying.
 
No Different Than An Established Brand
Once I had my racket strung with my usual strings it played no different than a top offering of a more established brand… you will be seriously surprised at the level of the performance from the Vermont Archon!

Ice Hockey 101: Everything You Need To Know

Tags :

Category : Blog

If you’re just starting out in your ice hockey career or brushing up on your sporting knowledge for the next pub quiz, we’ve got everything you could possibly need to know right here…

 
The national winter sport of Canada, hockey or ‘ice hockey’ has been around for centuries, with the first recorded game taking place in Montreal’s Victoria Skating Rink in 1875. Whilst the game has changed a bit since then (and stricter rules have been introduced), it’s now played by both men and women at the Winter Olympic Games, with more than 1.5 million people taking to the ice every year.
 
What size is a hockey rink?
Hockey rink sizes can vary depending on the level of those playing, however there are two typical dimensions which tend to be adhered to; the National Hockey League (NHL) rinks in America and Olympic rinks. NHL rinks measure 85ft x 200ft (26m x 61m), whilst international rinks differ slightly and have dimensions of 98.4ft x 197ft (30m x 60m).
 
How many players are on a hockey team?
Six players make up a hockey team; five skaters and one goalkeeper. However, teams tend to have approximately 20 players in total, as you can have as many substitutions as you like at any time of the game (except when the defensive team ices the puck).
 

 
How long is a hockey game?
Hockey games are made up of three lots of twenty-minute periods, with the total game time coming in at one hour.
 
What is a hockey puck made of?
Hockey pucks are 1” thick (25mm) x 3” (76mm) in diameter and made using vulcanised rubber – a special process which involves mixing rubber with chemical compounds such as sulphate to make the rubber as strong as possible. Those used in NHL games weigh approximately 170g (6oz), however many players will practice with heavier pucks in training to improve their shots and novices may use slightly lighter ones.
 
What are the dimensions of a hockey goal?
Unlike ice rinks, regulation hockey goals don’t differ in size. All adhere to the NHL’s ruling which states hockey goal dimensions must be 72” x 48” (1.8m x 1.2m). If yours has taken a few too many slap shots this season, then look no further than the Net World Sports Professional Ice Hockey Goal & Net. Made from 2” thick galvanised steel with a robust 5mm net (1 5/8” mesh size), it’ll stop any puck in its tracks!
 

 
What do you need to play hockey?
There’s quite a few things players need for hockey before they can take to the ice. From hockey sticks and specific skates through to helmets with face shields, shoulder and shin pads, gumshields, gloves, neck guards… the list goes on! The most important thing to remember is you’re well protected and have all the correct gear before playing.
 

So, there we have it, Net World Sports’ Ice Hockey 101! There is so much more information out there if you’re thinking of getting more into the sport and don’t forget to visit our website for all your match day and training equipment needs – just click on your country below…

The Net World Word Spreads To MMP Mid Wales League

Tags :

Category : Blog

When Chief Operating Officer of Welsh Premier League team, The New Saints FC (TNS) recommended FORZA Pro Match Fusion Footballs to MMP Mid Wales League they snapped them up…

 
Operating at the third and fourth tier of the Welsh football league system, the MMP Mid Wales League has seen teams such as Llanrhaeadr YM and Llandrindod Wells promoted into the Cymru Alliance, whilst Caersws, Radnor Valley and Llanidloes Town are currently sitting top three of 2018/19 table, fighting to go up next season. The MMP Mid Wales League receive grants from the Football Association of Wales (FAW), and with this aid they attempt to help clubs with equipment in the lead up to the new season. This summer, the help came in the form of 100 of our FORZA Pro Match Fusion Footballs!
 

 
Good Value for Money…
“Ian Williams, Chief Operating Officer of TNS who also sits on the board for FAW, was the first person who recommended we should take a look at FORZA’s footballs,” explains Phil Woosnam, MMP Mid Wales League Secretary. “He showed us a few samples that he’d received when TNS were looking at different match footballs and they appeared really good value for money in terms of the quality, so we went for it and ordered 100 balls to give out to the clubs!”
 
First Class Service…
Ian put Phil in touch with our Specialist Sales and Development Lead Team, who looked after the league’s purchase through every step of the process; from ensuring they were the best balls to meet the clubs’ requirements through to delivery and aftercare. “The service we received from Net World Sports was absolutely first class from start to finish,” comments Phil. “The FORZA Pro Match Fusion Footballs are being used generally by the clubs as their go to match balls, which they were intended for when we first purchased them and it’s great to see them being utilised.”
 

 
Will Purchase Again…
All the clubs in the MMP Mid Wales League received the FORZA Pro Match Fusion Footballs before the start of the 2018/19 season and the league could not recommend our services enough. Phil told us: “If the majority of the clubs are happy with them, then we will purchase again next season!”

FORZA Goals Tick The Box For Aura Leisure…

Tags :

Category : Blog

Conforming to FA match regulations and surpassing safety standards, a pair of full-size FORZA Alu110 Freestanding Stadium Box Football Goals were top of Aura Leisure’s list for the new season…

 
Home to an ice rink, indoor skate park, fitness suite, two sports halls, four squash courts, six 3G football pitches and a grass pitch, Aura Leisure’s Deeside Leisure Centre attracts a range of sports fanatics from across Flintshire in North Wales. With the new season looming, Deeside Leisure Centre’s Development Officer, Lee Breeze, looked to Net World Sports to kit out their grass pitch with top of the range full size FORZA Alu110 Freestanding Stadium Box Football Goals.
 
The summer break gives sports centres, schools, colleges and universities time to plan, prepare and purchase equipment ready for August and as Deeside Leisure Centre were looking to reintroduce football to their grass pitch ahead of the new season, they needed new state of the art goals to look the part and fit their purpose. “I wanted roll on, roll off, football goals for the grass pitch”, Centre Development Officer, Lee Breeze, comments. “We already have rugby posts permanently fixed in the pitch, so we needed football goals that were easy to manoeuvre depending on fixtures and training.”
 

 
All the FORZA Alu110 Freestanding Football Goals are available with optional, extra wide, Lever Type Wheels, which offer the ultimate goal mobility! The rubber wheels are puncture proof with a deep diamond tread allowing you to easily move the goals on / off pitches and you don’t have to worry about marking the grass as they raise the goals 100mm off the ground!
 

 
Easy to navigate website…
Having ordered a range of football training equipment from us before, including Marker Cones, Training Vests, Speed & Agility Ladders, Evasion Training Agility Belts and FORZA Match Footballs, Lee was already familiar with our team and the products we offer so when the time came to look for new football goals he got in touch! “I originally looked at the different football goals available on the Net World Sports website which was really easy to use, and then got in touch with enquiries with a few follow up questions that were answered quickly and efficiently.”
 
Really good standard of goals…
Aura Leisure placed the order not long after getting in touch and it was arranged for both full-size goals to be delivered within the week. “I was really happy with the whole process, from ordering to using the products – as soon as we had set the goals up we tried them out and they’re a really good standard, we couldn’t be more pleased!”
 

 
The 24 x 8 FORZA Alu110 Freestanding Stadium Box Goals are now in use at Deeside Leisure Centre and are being used with the Aura Football Coaching Programme for players looking to perfect their prowess within the beautiful game.
