A sunny but windy Sunday (10th May 2015) saw a bumper turnout of teams for the Regional H5 and u12s competition held at the fantastic new facilities of the Priory Ruskin Academy Grantham Lincs. Both age groups had 11 teams in each from all five counties across the East Midlands playing in two groups with playoffs at the end. There was some great netball played by all with many potential stars in the making.
The event this year was hosted was hosted by Lincolnshire County Netball and Fenland Netball Club. Refreshments and cakes were provided to raise funds for Lincolnshire’s Jade Potter who has been selected to represent England in the Indoor Netball Competition in Australia in September. Thank you to every one as £350 was raised.
Jade was on hand to talk to the youngsters about her trip and how she has moved through the performance programme to achieve her goals. Jade also presented the medals at the end to the winners and runners up of the tournament.
