"My sister Grace adored netball – she played Goal Attack in her school 1st VII. She was always a determined sportswoman; not long before she died in a car accident in 2009, her school created a special prize – the Most Improved Sportsperson Award – to reward her efforts. She was so proud of this achievement that she wouldn’t even rise to teasing about how bad she must have been to start with. Now she is to receive another truly remarkable honour" - Grace's brother Jasper Hadman.
Building Malawi has created a netball centre in memory of Grace.
Grace's Netball Court features a 60m x 40m tree lined space with 1 hard surface netball court and 2 grass netball courts. A large thatch building which has a stage and changing rooms has also been constructed and provides a shaded space to meet as well as a viewing platform for the netball and across the whole city. Grace's Netball Court will be decorated with Grace's art work and be a place for the girls to meet socially, as well as being used for drama productions and an annual rock festival called Lilongwe Love. There is a full time netball coach working at the facility.
