Diane hopes to clinch place.

Diane Reddell is one of scores of North-East women who hopes to clinch a place on Northumbria University's pilot `Women in Sport' scheme.

Diane, 31, wants to be trained in either tennis, badminton or rugby.

She believes the project will not only equip her with valuable people management skills and help her become fitter but also place women at the forefront of the sporting world.

Diane, a first-year student at the university reading a degree in Human Organisations, said: "Women need to come to the forefront and become more equal to men. In tennis, we don't have anyone in the forefront like Tim Henman or Greg Rusedski. Women need more opportunities."
