Regional Back to Netball (North) Champions – Black & Blue

 On Sunday, six Back to Netball teams from Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Avon came together for the Regional Back to Netball (North) Festival. It was held at Bentham Country Club (Gloucester) with an all-play-all structure. The top four performing teams then progressed through to the Final and 3rd vs. 4th play off.

The final results were as follows:

1st – Black & Blue (as seen in photo)

2nd – Malmesbury

3rd – Chippenham Vixens

4th – St Barnabas

Joint 5th – Mira Masters and Chippenham Vipers

Well done to all who took part, especially Black & Blue from Avon. In addition, we raised £105 for England Netball’s partner charity, Cancer Research UK.
