On Saturday 18th May F3 to Third Form Prep and Senior School girls went to the Copper Box venue at the London Olympic Park. They watched two elite netball matches. The SuperLeague Bronze place play off match between Bath and Loughborough Lightening and the final Gold match between Wasps and Manchester Thunder. The girls enjoyed both matches and were cheering the teams on enthusiastically. It was great to see such a high standard of play and the shooting was amazing, with lots of goals scored. The girls were also lucky enough to watch some of the England Roses Netball Team performing among the four teams and they also got to see the warm up drills and half time competitions that were played which replicates some of the drills the girls are already doing in school. We finished the day watching the presentations at the end with Manchester Thunder being the overall champions! A great day out and a fantastic experience for the girls to watch elite netball and see some excellent female sports role models.
