On a beautifully sunny weekend 12 girls took part in a netball tournament at Condover Hall. The mornings were jam packed with netball matches lasting 12 minutes each with teams entering from schools and clubs. Both teams ‘Thunder’ and ‘Lightning’ played extremely well. ‘Thunder’ won five games out of five on their first day, and ‘Lightning’ won four and drew one. Congratulations to all of you for playing so well!

Being held at a JCA venue then enabled the girls to choose from activities such as high ropes, abseiling, tunneling and archery in the afternoons and evenings. The excitement of the silent disco was building for the Saturday evening only to find out it had been cancelled and replaced with a regular disco. Our girls undeterred flung themselves into the spirit eventually winning a dance-off through default.

On the second day of matches both teams progressed through to the semi finals. Both teams were then unfortunately defeated and knocked out. It was a great weekend of fixtures and thrills and having fun rolling down the hills!
