Fourteen regional league teams from across all divisions entered the pre-season friendly tournament held on Sunday 1st Sept at the University of Exeter Sports Park. Teams were giving a run-out to their new squads before the league season starts.

The playing format was in two groups of 7, with each team playing each other in their groups.

The winner of group A was Mavericks from Div 2 who won all their matches, with Exeter, newly promoted to Div 1 for this season, finishing second.


Group B saw Cornwall Saints, new to Div 2, winning all their matches, except for a draw with Teignbridge Titans. Carol Anne, also from Div 2 finished as runners-up

Mavericks beat Carol Anne in the first semi-final, with Saints losing to Exeter in the other semi.

The final was close with Exeter unable to hold on to their first half lead and losing by one goal to an experienced Mavericks team.

The playoff between the losing semi-finalists saw Saints beat Carol Anne to take 3rd place.

Thanks to the all the umpires and scorers, and to Exeter Netball club who supplied the refreshments

Good luck to all teams in the new season.
