King’s Netball have had a busy few weeks. Preseason started the term well. Over 40 girls attending on the 3rd January and many have since played in their respective teams.
U19 County success
On Monday 6th January the U19 squad played Worcester University’s 1st team in preparation for their County tournament held on Tuesday 14th. This was a good early test for the girls and one which undoubtedly helped them to finish as runners-up at the tournament. They will now progress to the Regional finals at the end of January.
Over the weekend of the 11th and 12th January, over 90 girls represented the school at KES Bath, in 11 fixtures. The level of netball on display was highly commendable and, as always, Bath proved to be a real challenge with some extremely tight games, with only one goal separating some matches.
Just before Christmas the U13 squad did a fantastic job of securing a final 16 place in the Independent Schools’ Plate competition. On Monday they faced a formidable Woodhouse Grove and although they showed moments of excellence; the opposition were too strong. Yet, the girls have learnt an incredible amount from this competition and it has been the first time that some of them have played almost an hour match.
