Bicester Area High Five Netball

On 28th September 2016 in glorious sunshine the Bicester School, in conjunction with Bicester Foxes Junior Netball Club, ran a High 5 Netball competition for primary school children in Years 5 and 6, which proved popular with girls and boys alike. Fifteen teams took part in the event from King’s Meadow, Fritwell, Brookside, Bure Park, Chesterton, Southwold and Langford Primary School and Five Acres. There were a total of 108 pupils competing in the afternoon.  

The teams played a series of round robin games in two groups, with play-off games following the group stage. The matches were expertly umpired by young leaders from Bicester and Cooper Schools who are all members of Bicester Foxes Junior Netball Club.

In addition the young leader delivered warm ups for each team and offered plenty of encouragement throughout. In closely contested matches with lots of skill and effort on display Chesterton ‘A’ narrowly defeated Langford B 3-2 in the final to become Bicester Area champions. 

During the event, the Spirit of the Games value of teamwork was a key focus area.  A player from each team was selected and presented with a special certificate in recognition of the excellent teamwork skills they had shown throughout the competition.

Congratulations to all players, teachers and Sport leaders involved who contributed to an enjoyable competition. Thank you too to Kate Sheppard (Bicester Foxes coach and Cooper School) for training the young leaders and delivering the event on the day.
