Versatility with a TWIST July 13th
A very successful rally was held last night with 8 teams competing in a versatility.
The TWIST enabled the WA to take a shot from the outside of the shooting circle and if a goal was scored,5 goals were achieved.
Teams rotated positions every game.
Only two games per team allowed the twist but it made the rally more exciting and definitely quite humorous.
Winners were Sideways 8....congratulations ladies. You won every game.
2nd Eastbourne 1
5th Eastbourne 2
There were some very high scoring games in the 13 minutes, with Eastbourne 1 scoring 28 goals in one match. Due to the TWIST!
All monies will be added to our Grenfell Tower fund and thank you umpires, players, scorers and spectators for a great night of netball.
There was lots of laughter and hoots when the WA attempted the long distance shots and loud applause if these were successful.

Great name for the Tigers team…they pounced on the first centre pass and ripped through the court at speed. Blaze knew they were in for a fight, but they never gave up and even with some tired legs on court, they played some great netball. Blaze fought hard in the shooting circle and popped in some tremendous shots. Tigers also were stars in the shooting circle. The GA and GS play very well together and were dynamic with the rebounds Final score Tigers 47, Blaze 15 So welcome to Pool A Tigers and Blaze good luck in Pool B
