Last Sunday saw the first Tri-counties Walking Netball Festival in the region.  The event took place at Bentham Country Club in Gloucestershire and 16 teams from counties in the north of the region entered.  Each team entered a squad of up to 10 ladies and played six games throughout the Festival.  The standard of play was incredibly high and even those non-competitive teams began to enquire after the score after their games!  Despite a very warm day, the teams really enjoyed themselves and were very generous with regards to the raffle in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The overall winners of the day were Gloucestershire based Bentham WN who were undefeated throughout the Festival.

We’d like to thank the umpires again for their support on the day, as ever without them the event would have not been possible.
