Burgess Hill student selected for South East Volleyball team

March 9, 2020

Talented Sussex athlete Peanut Meekings has been selected to represent the South East at the 2020 England Volleyball Inter-Regional competitions.

Burgess Hill Girls’ student Peanut is already an accomplished athlete; she represents Sussex at the Javelin and was invited to join the British Athletics Youth Talent Programme in 2019.  She only took up volleyball a few years ago, but now plays for Burgess Hill Girls, Sussex Dolphins and Aschcombe Under 18’s.  The England Inter-Regional competitions will take place at the National Volleyball Centre in Kettering on the 23rd & 24th May.

Peanut is thrilled with the news: “I am absolutely ecstatic to have been selected for the South East Volleyball team.  It shows all the hard work was worth it! I am also very grateful to my teachers at Burgess Hill Girls for introducing me to indoor volleyball.”

Head Liz Laybourn is delighted to see Peanut expanding her repertoire of sports.

“Peanut’s sporting success has no limits.  It’s great to see her doing so well in a team sport which perfectly complements her Javelin training.  She is a wonderful role model for other students at Burgess Hill Girls. Work hard, believe in yourself and you can get there.”
