Our U13 Netball girls went to Knysna for the Netball Festival over the long weekend. This event was a pre-season festival, not a tournament. The players and the coaches were encouraged to play in good sporting spirit.
The teams that took part were:
Eversdal A and B
Kenridge u13 and U12
Rhenish A and B
Knysna u13 and u12
All the teams arrived on Friday 29 April and stayed at various venues around Knysna. Everyone met up later for dinner at various restaurants all near to each other at the Waterfront.
The matches were scheduled for Saturday, Sunday and Monday and all the teams played in a round Robin style event. After their matches the girls were given free time in the afternoon to enjoy themselves. They went to the beach, swam, had waffles and ice-cream and relaxed back at their lodge.
On Monday we all departed and headed back to Hout Bay. It was a fun tournament, where the girls gathered lots of experience and I’m sure it will be a highlight for most of the girls, of their grade 7 year.
