A group of year 5 and 6 girls travelled to Stamford on Wednesday afternoon to play in a friendly festival. This included teams from Witham Hall, Stoneygate, Stanmford, Grantham Prep and Fairfields. This year we have seen a transition to 5 ‘a’ side Bee Netball which involves players gaining valuable experience in all positions, as it allows for rotation of players each quarter. The festival was a perfect opportunity for the girls to gain experience rotating and put into practice what they have been learning in our games sessions, as well as becoming more familiar with the new adapted ‘stinger rules’. Amelie and Scarlett captained the teams and displayed good leadership qualities. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, especially facing some new opposition as well as playing some familiar rivals. There were some good phases of play from St Hugh’s and we came away with a number of areas to develop in preparation for the rest of the season. Well done to Olivia for finding the net in a tough game against Witham Hall.
