Lisa Johnston
A shooter is what Basildon Blacks wanted and that is what they got when Lisa joined.  An excellent GS who has an eye for the game from one end of the court to the other.  A steal from Blackwater...!
Natalie Lewis

Natalie joined the Club, primarily playing for the Basildon team in summer 2010.  Her main position is GD but after heavily damaging her ankle early on in the season, she has been easing herself back into the sport and playing GK, and again since giving birth.  She previously helped out over at Southend when the team played in that league.

Lorraine has recently taken stepped down as captain of Thurrock but continues to support as vice-capital  She is also the club's Treasurer.  She is predominately a Thurrock team player but can usually be spotted playing in the Basildon Black team too.
Wendy Montague
Wendy joined Sanders early in 2010 after being introduced to us by our then coach Steph.  She is a superb WA who desperately wants to be a GK!  She has great court presence and you can hear her whatever end of the court you're on.  She has returned as a first team player for Basildon Black just 5 weeks after giving birth!  She also helps Thurrock when needed and plays for a team in Chelmsford.
Katie Smith

Thurrock Captain

Katie initially joined Sanders playing for both Thurrock and Basildon.  She has recently taken over the mantel of Captain for Thurrock.  She is a fierce and quick centre court player and on many occasions helps out the Basildon Black team.

Santina Thomas

Santina has been playing for Sanders since August 2009. She has played for most teams but now mainly helps the Thurrock team when required. She has her own team in Basildon but is a 'C' award umpire and helps Sanders teams when an umpire is needed. You can normally hear her before you see her, and if she’s not on the court playing, she’s off the court eating!

Santina also plays for her team in Chelmsford.

Jo Whittington

Jo started off playing defence for Sanders in 2007 but her versatility means she is often seen playing in all sorts of positions from Centre to Goal Defence.  She is a first team player for Basildon Black and helps the Thurrock team when required.
