Netball South West was well represented during the 4 day 2018 NPL Tournament that took place at the University of Nottingham. Manchester Thunder (U17 and U21) and London Pulse (U19) were crowned champions at the tournament, however the success of our Team Bath and Severn Stars franchises had not gone unnoticed.
