On Saturday 8th September, the Avon House netball team participated in the Chigwell netball tournament. This was the first event for the team this year and some of them were playing in the team for the first time but we were all pleasantly surprised by the outcome of the tournament!
The first game they played was against Urseline Prep which was tough and unfortunately they lost 12 – 1. However, their second match was against St. John Fisher and the team played so much better which resulted in an 8-2 win. The girls then had a break whilst the teams were re-grouped based on the results from the first round. In this break the girls worked on some training drills ready for the next set of games.
Avon House then went on to play more matches against Forest, Brentwood and Woodford Prep. The girls had a mixture of results including a win against Brentwood and a loss to Forest but the girls really gained confidence throughout and were working excellently as a team.
Overall, the girls played extremely well and ended up coming 2nd in their group and 6th out of a total 12 teams. It was a really great start to the year.
