As part of the Herts County Netball Associations plan to provide competitive provision for the less established netballing schools in the county, we ran our first ever Emerging Schools Netball festival. We invited local schools who had not entered National Schools or the St Albans Invitational tournament in the last two years to enter a Year 9 team. We were thrilled to receive team entries from 8 schools including some new faces to Netball Tournaments in the county.

On the day the weather stayed on our side and the girls took to the courts for 7 games in a round robin competition. All of the teams played some fantastic netball, growing in confidence throughout the day under the guidance of our excellent volunteer umpires from Oaklands Netball Academy and the University of Hertfordshire. Even after lunch they maintained their enthusiasm, in no small part down to cheerleading coming from the side-lines from subs and teachers.

As the day drew to a close Turnford School remained unbeaten and took the title as the first Emerging Schools Festival winners, with Sir John Lawes and Sheredes School coming up close behind in 2nd and 3rd places. Throughout the day the umpires were asked to look out for shows of good sportsmanship and great play and pick their Player and Team of the Tournament.

Player of the Tournament was awarded to – Jordan Woodford-Smith from Sheredes School for her excellent sportsmanship, respect for the umpires and encouragement to the rest of her team.

Team of the Tournament was awarded to – Sele School who despite not winning a match remained competitive and great spirited down to the final whistle.

Many thanks must go to the ladies from Oaklands Netball Academy and the University of Hertfordshire who officiated the tournament and did an excellent job! We hope the teams who came along had as much as we did and have got the netball bug! No doubt we’ll see you again next year for an even bigger better competition.
