Junior Netball Tournament
On Monday 25 February, we were delighted to welcome a number of local prep schools to St John's School for our annual Junior Netball Tournament.
Schools were invited to attend with two teams, one from Year 5 and one from Year 6, to compete in a round robin tournament. Many competitive matches were played between schools, with fantastic team spirit being shown.
We were very fortunate with the sunshine, as the tournament was held on the warmest February day ever recorded; it was a stark comparison to last year’s tournament, which had to be postponed due to snow! Coaches and parents spent the afternoon outside in the warm winter air, supporting their teams from the sidelines.
Each school played seven matches and the top teams in each year group competed to win the trophy in excellently fought finals.
Director of Sport, Gareth James said: “Well done to all the teams and pupils that participated and made the tournament such an energetic and successful afternoon. Congratulations to Bute House for winning the tournament in both age groups.”
We very much look forward to hosting this tournament again next year.
