'Believe and Achieve Together'

Y5/6 Netball Tournament

Netball Tournament

Across three weeks, the Butlers Court Y5 and Y6 netball teams played a tournament against nine other schools. Every team played each other at least twice.


The A team began with a wonderful win of 9-0 against St Peter’s, with help from shooter Jasmine Grinhaff who scored a grand total of six goals. With high spirits after seeing this match, the B team played Gerrads Cross but the score was unfortunately 2-1 to the opponents.


Next the A team played Seer Green, and Gerrads cross winning one, losing one, and coming to a draw on the final one against Stoke Poges. While these matches were being played, the B team battled with Holtspur to finish with a one all result.


On week two, the A team played Lent rise with a good result of 2-1 to us. Later they played Holtspur and Seer Green, with results of 2-0 and 1-0 to the other teams. The B team played Lent rise, Stoke Poges and Holtspur in closely fought matches. Next, the A team played the B team in an intense match. It was odd as everyone was marking their friends! With help from A team shooters, Aymee Patel and Jasmine Grinhaff, the A team had an impressive win of 6-0 to them.


In week three, the A team played six matches, winning a grand total of four matches, drawing one and losing one. Thankfully, Stoke Poges did not score any goals against us, and the match ended at 0-0. As this happened, the B team played five matches against St Peter’s, Seer Green, Farnham Common A, Gerrads Cross B, and Stoke Poges A. Again these matches had very close results.


The B team ended up with a credible 7th place position and the A team a wonderful 3rd . Well done to all the players who took part.

Thank you to Mrs Strawa for organising the event.
