La Manga Netball Tour

Forty two girls from LIV to LV left a cloudy England and headed to the beautiful blue skies of La Manga to take part in the Spanish Netball Festival.

Over 180 girls from schools all over the UK took part in two days of intensive coaching and a very exciting Festival Tournament on the last day. Each day began with the girls taking part in strength and conditioning on the beach to music, followed by coaching workshops which covered shooting, attacking and defending. There were also customised workshops for each school with an emphasis on team work. Over thirty teams took part in the Festival Tournament and as usual the Wycombe teams went out with real determination and every year group U13, U14 and U16 were rewarded with trophies and silver medals by achieving runners up in each age group.

In the evening the girls showed their talents at the Karaoke evening and also on the last night when there was a 'Netball's Got Talent Competition'. Even the staff joined in with a rap (accompanied by Mrs 'J'!!) A wonderful and memorable time was had by all. Special thanks must go to Mrs Taylor, Miss Collins and Miss Lowther for their help and support in making the trip run so smoothly and successfully.
