Each week we bring you a good news story from across the South West as part of our wedNEWSday articles.
The South West County Academy Tournament took place on Sunday 24th April, at Exeter University. Showcasing talent players from across the region. Having not been able to run the event since the start of the COVID Pandemic, so it was great to see players from 8 County academies on court.
There were lots of closely contested matches with games being won by a single goal but the most exciting match was between East Devon and Jersey. Neither team had lost a game until they met on court, and it lived up to expectations with Jersey taking the win by a single goal. Both teams had one more match to play. Jersey secured their final win and consequently won the tournament East Devon were a close 2nd followed by Avon in 3rd place.
It was truly a brilliant day, fantastic to see so many players and spectators enjoying our wonderful game. A massive thank you to Team Bath for the organisation and to all our wonderful umpires and coaches who made the day possible.
