Winning Welford Triumph In High 5 Primary Netball Tournament

Primary schools from across Warwickshire travelled to Princethorpe College to play in this year’s High 5 Netball Tournament. Defending champions Ettington Church of England Primary School were joined by Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School, Claverdon Primary School, Welford-on-Avon Primary School and first time entrants Bilton Church of England Junior School for an afternoon of competitive fun in the lovely late afternoon sunshine on Monday 26 March.

The teams had the chance to test their skills against their opponents in a round robin of matches on Princethorpe’s hard courts. With vocal support from the side-lines, the children threw themselves enthusiastically into the matches clearly enjoying the competitive nature of the tournament.

Umpired by Princethorpe’s netball coaches, Head of Girls Games, Debs Brookes and, PE Teacher, Hannah Carminati, you could see the children’s skills developing game by game as they took on board the coaches feedback and suggestions.

The winners this year were Welford-on-Avon School who played with flair and enthusiasm to finish the competition victorious in all their matches.

Presenting them with the trophy, Debs Brookes commented on the impressive performances she had seen, “I hope the children continue with their netball as there was some real talent on show today. We saw great ball work, tremendous teamwork and lots of energy and enthusiasm too.’
