DD (9), who is a very capable reader, is looking for any fiction books / series with a sporty theme, particularly netball and hockey.

Do any such books exist? Very grateful for any suggestions, please.

I can only think of Noel Stretfeild's 'Tennis Shoes' and 'White Boots' but there must be more!

The Trebizon Series (Anne Fine perhaps) has a lot about Hockey, but also Tennis.

Great suggestions, thanks.

DD has read White Boots and Ballet Shoes, but I'd forgotten about all the other Noel Streatfeilds!

I loved all the Trebizons as a child and still have them all in the loft - time to get them back down methinks!

Enid Blyton might be a bit easy but there is lots of swimming and lacrosse in Malory Towers
