The league got off to a very successful start with 11 teams entered, each of our teams played two games and they either won or drew their game. The Southover Tournament had 13 teams entered; it was noted that the local primary schools’ commitment to improving the standard and enjoyment of netball is starting to take effect. Wallands demonstrated excellent sportsmanship and support of one another throughout the afternoon Wallands A met Lewes Old Grammar School in the semi-final. During the earlier round they were evenly matched, Wallands were pretty determined and improved their game to get through to the final where they played South Malling for a tough match but Wallands did win and bring back the cup to school. Our B team lost two, drew one and won one of their four games. C team won three and lost one game, narrowly missing going through to the semi-finals by one point. Well done to all the children who played.
