U14 Netball Tournament


The Year 8's recently spent the day at Keele University competing in the regional Netball tournament. There were 7 teams involved and the students played 6 x 20-minute games and with a full team and 3 subs it was very physically demanding but our students did great.


They came up against some players that compete for the county and that did not phase them. There were many goals scored and players really stepped up, a special mention to Nnenna who often won players player (nominated by the other team every game) and Sophie, without a doubt played the best she has ever played.


Overall, the students who represented The King's were amazing, and their sportsmanship was top notch. The winners of the tournament were fantastic, but when we played them by half time it was 2-2, the second half seen them score a few more goals then us, but our students walked away very impressed with themselves and stated that next year, with everyone committing to training they have a chance at placing, and maybe even winning.
