Leicester Netball Tour

The annual Leicester netball tour took place on weekend of the 5th – 7th December.

Forty pupils from year 7 and 8 made the trip north along with four young leaders from years 10 and 12. The weekend was jam packed with netball and various activities to reward the girls’ for their commitment to school sport.

The Friday afternoon involved a very competitive fixture against Leicester Grammar School. Following the fixture the teams enjoyed a game of bowling and a meal a Frankie and Benny’s. Despite the icy conditions the Saturday morning started with a fixture against Nottingham High School before an afternoon of swimming and quasar.

Everyone involved in the tour had a fantastic time. To see so many pupils enjoying their netball, working with the older leaders and making new friends was extremely rewarding.
