It’s that time of the week again – wedNEWSday! Our news this weekend came from our second regional Back 2 Netball Festival this year. Make sure you check back each week for a new and exciting story from the South West Netball world. 

Regional Back to Netball Festival Success

Paignton Academy hosted the Netball South West Regional Back to Netball Festival (South) on 5th February 2017.

14 teams from across Devon and Cornwall whom have recently returned to, or taken up, netball competed for the title of NSW Back to Netball Champions (South) 2017.

All teams provided raffle prizes and a draw for Cancer Research UK was held raising £124.

It was a tough competition with teams split into two pools – at the end of the rounds both pool placings had to be decided on goal difference! Heading into the semi-finals were Haytor Hearts and Dart Vortex from pool A, and Quayside 1 and Alphanets from pool B. Quayside 1 got the better of Dart Vortex by one goal in semi-final one and  Haytor Hearts had a convincing 10-3 win over Alphanets to take them into the final. The overall winners were Haytor Hearts, with Quayside 1 taking second place.
