Netball teams compete in Paris

18th April 2017

Over the Easter break twenty netballers from the Academy travelled to France to enjoy an International Netball Tournament, staged at Disneyland Paris. The standard of netball played was of the highest order, both of our teams out performed with the U14 finishing 3rd in the Shield Competition and our U15 team (who were playing in the U16 category) finishing a very credible 6th place overall.

The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the trip, not only did the teams compete against schools from around the country (and also Australia and Dubai) but also gained experience of travelling abroad and exploring different cultures.

The team were able to meet their netballing heroes during the event and the photograph shows the students with  England Netball Team's Goal Defence, Eboni Beckford-Chambers.
