All girls play netball throughout their time at Derwent Lodge as members of year group teams. Last season we enjoyed many successes across our senior and junior year groups.
Our Under 11 A team won all their group games at the Regional IAPS Tournament at Felsted School in March, resulting in automatic qualification for the National Finals! There was celebration all round and extra team practices organised to ensure the girls were fully prepared for the National Finals at Roedean School in two weeks later. On the day the girls put up a strong battle against some fierce opposition, on what was an extremely windy and cold day down on the cliffs of Brighton! Whilst the girls did not place in the tournament, they did enjoy themselves immensely and all involved came away with a huge sense of achievement.
Also very worthy of mention, the Under 8’s won 17 of their 22 matches, with their season culminating in victory at the Hazelwood Tournament after a fantastic performance by the A team. Our Under 9 statistics were also very similar, so our junior netball teams most certainly have a very promising future.
