Sherborne House School reaches finals of ISA National Netball Tournament

Posted on: 21 May 2018

 

Staff, children and parents at Sherborne House School are celebrating after reaching the final of the ISA National Netball Tournament which took place on the 11th May in York.

Each year, the Independent Schools Association hold national tournaments in a range of sports, to bring schools from different parts of the UK together, and compete in their chosen sport for a national title. 

In order to reach the ISA National Tournament, school teams must compete and qualify at an area level throughout the country. Sherborne House School's U11 netball team competed in the London West region at Maidenhead in the Spring term. There were 14 teams altogether and Sherborne House School were runners-up, meaning they qualified for the national tournament in York. 

The team went through to compete in the final after a series of matches throughout the day. The tournament started with the team winning their group stage round-robin matches, then fighting their way through the quarter and semi-final matches to reach the final match. During the final, although the team continued to exert themselves throughout the game, tiredness and their opponent’s strong pattern of play won them the title.

The team, staff and parents were very proud of how far Sherborne House School’s team came at a national level. Pat Whytehead, Head of Girls Games at Sherborne House School, said: “Well done to the girls for reaching the finals at a National tournament and achieving their silver medals for second place. I am immensely proud of their achievement and the way they conducted themselves throughout the day. Many thanks to the parents who travelled to York and provided excellent support and encouragement to the team.”
