Rojales Netball Club took part in the Netball 7s Tournament on La Manga Club last weekend. The event was attended by 40+ teams from the UK.
Rojales’ first game was against really tough opposition who never really allowed them to get in to the game. It meant Rojales needed to step up in the next one and they worked tirelessly to come away with a 4-4 draw.
By the time Rojales went into their last game in their group they were well in to their stride and earned a well deserved 7-4 win.
It was on to the knockout stage next. It was a fast paced game with the centre court of Ange, Roni, Zara/Donna moving the ball up towards the shooting partnership of Millie and Wendy. At the other end of the court Claire and Louise put on a great defensive display. Rojales came away winners and the quarter finals beckoned.
The quarters turned out to be Rojales last game as they lost and were therefore knocked out of the tournament. Their overall performance throughout was to be commended though, especially as these UK teams are playing competitively 2/3 times a week.
The day ended with a presentation dinner and then the party commenced…
