Last Friday 8th March, we held our third Elite Tournament of the school year. The High-5 Netball Tournament saw 12 teams competing across 3 courts and 35 games being played throughout the afternoon. The tournament, being the biggest one that we’ve held to date, turned out to be an impressive afternoon of talent the biggest one that we’ve hosted to date!

The Elite Tournament had a great mixture of boys and girls playing across all schools, with fantastic Netball being played in both groups. It was great to see the development and improvement of the children throughout the tournament.

The top 3 teams of the competition went through to the main cup competition whilst the bottom 3 teams went through to compete for the plate. First place automatically proceeded to the Semi Finals of the Cup competition whilst 4th place automatically proceeded to the Semi Finals of the Plate.
