Victory for Panthers at PGL

HAMPTON LADIES NETBALL CLUB entered one of their junior teams, 'Panthers', in their first netball tour at a PGL Activity Centre in Shropshire in March. This was a first for the girls, and as well as competing against experienced U16's teams from around the UK, they had the opportunity to take part in outdoor adventure activities too.

It was an action packed weekend that started with abseiling and high ropes as a warm up before the netball competition got underway in the afternoon. With their new kit receiving some envious glances, Panthers won three of the five games scheduled that afternoon in style. Sunday continued with some rifle shooting before playing their final game of preliminaries which they won comfortably 16-3. While goal difference and average goals were taken into consideration it was a nervous wait to see if they had got through to the final…they had, but only just by 0.3 of a goal!

With a surprise visit from Hertfordshire Mavericks and England Squad member Sasha Corbin, the girls prepared for the final against Dudley Netball Club who they had lost to on the Saturday. Panthers came out fighting, they battled for every ball and rebound securing an early lead. Dudley were not able to get back on level terms and Panthers were able to keep the pressure on winning 7-5!

Tracey Hammond, Coach for the weekend said "This is the best netball I've seen Panthers play, they are a true asset to Hampton Ladies Netball Club and we are all very proud of their achievement".
