The Croft Were High 5 Netball Champions

06 Mar

The College welcomed nine Warwickshire primary school teams to Princethorpe’s High 5 Netball Tournament on Tuesday 5 March.

Playing were teams from Barford St Peters CE Primary School, Claverdon Primary School, Milverton Primary School, Grange Farm Primary School, St Marys Catholic School, Cawston Grange Primary School and The Croft Prep School.

The competition took place in warm spring sunshine outside on netball courts and the teams had the chance to test their skills against their opponents in a round robin of matches playing to England Netball High 5 netball rules; a popular entry format of the traditional game that has players rotating positions and ensures the ball keeps moving. With vocal support from parents on the side-lines, the children threw themselves enthusiastically into the matches clearly enjoying the competitive nature of the tournament.

Umpired by Princethorpe’s Sports Leaders and staff, you could see the children’s skills developing game by game as they gained match experience and took on board feedback and suggestions.

Congratulations to The Croft who were the overall winners of the tournament. Well done also to Milverton and Grange Farm who came second and third.

Acting Primary Schools Sports Liaison, Ellie Callan, said, “It was great to welcome all the teams to Princethorpe and to be able to offer these young players the chance to play in a fun and friendly netball tournament. All the pupils were so enthusiastic; I saw great ball work, tremendous teamwork and plenty of energy on the courts today.”

A huge well done to all the players and many thanks to the College pupils and staff who organised and officiated all the games.
