Last Friday, 15 students went to Bath to watch Super League Netball at the University of Bath.

It was a very excited group that left Harrow Way in the minibus with Mrs Tunney and Miss Escritt as they all knew that they were in for a feast of great netball (and a feast at the KFC at Solstice Park on the way).  Bath were taking on Loughborough Lightening and there were going to be many England and Jamaican players taking to the court.

The girls were not disappointed as we were lucky to see Pam Cookey (England Captain), Stacey Francis, Serena Guthrie, Sophia Candappa, Mia Ritchie and, a real bonus, Kadeem Corbin, who was sitting right behind us in the stands due to an injury. Hence a great photograph opportunity.

The girls were amazed at the pace and fierce challenges that are all part of the modern game.  It was a fabulous opportunity for the girls to see top-flight netball and female role models. But for many the real highlight was that, at the end of the game, Team Bath were generous with their time and talked freely to the girls, giving autographs and photo opportunities.

A truly inspirational evening and let’s hope it rubs off on to our school team.
