On a very pleasant, sun shining Tuesday morning Copthorne’ s U13 Netball team travelled the very short distance to East Grinstead sports club for the annual IAPS Tournament. We were placed in a group with many familiar schools, but had a couple new schools to face.

Even though the girls gave their all and showed great resilience, they were unable to match the standard of play against some of the schools. The 7 minute half timings of the games caused the girls to play far too quickly resulting in inaccurate passes. There were some good movements off the ball and some good goals being scored but we were not consistent enough to make a difference in the final results.

It was a worthwhile experience for the girls, especially the year 7’s in the team. Good effort girls, well done!
