“Many fixtures are played throughout the term against local Prep Schools, along with entry into tournaments and IAPS competitions.”
Netball at King's Hall
Netball at King's Hall is played predominantly in year groups, where we run as many teams as numbers allow. All girls have the opportunity to represent the school at a level appropriate to their ability. Training is twice a week in games lessons, and matches are played on Wednesdays and some Saturdays. The six staff responsible for running the teams are enthusiastic and knowledgeable teachers, who are ably assisted by Gap students. The three netball courts are situated in an enclosed area, formally the walled garden of Pyrland Hall, which offers a unique and sheltered environment.
Progress & Achievement
In addition to timetabled lessons, netball hobbies are run in both the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. Regular trips are made to Bath to watch Team Bath or international matches. Many fixtures are also played throughout the term against local Prep Schools, along with entry into tournaments and IAPS competitions. Talented pupils are given the opportunity to trial for the County Academy. Recognition of performance is important: end of term awards are made for progress and achievement. In addition, Junior Colours, Senior Colours and Major Colours are awarded to deserving players.
