Twelve teams competed indoors in two sections of six. Only the winner from each section would compete in the final. There were no semi-finals. This meant that every match was important, and no team could afford to take their foot off the pedal. Granville begun their bid for victory by playing back-to-back matches against Walthamstow Hall and St Michaels. Scores of 9 – 0 and 7 – 2 in our favour settled the nerves. The next match was against Ashdown House from Forest Row – historically, an excellent netball school. It soon became apparent that Granville were not going to be threatened, and a 6 – 1 victory ensued. The final two matches returned two more wins of 4 – 0 and 6 – 3 against Holmewood House B team and Sevenoaks Prep respectively.
So, a full point tally of 25 meant that Granville were outright winners of our section. Russell House battled their way through to win the other section against teams as far away as Junior Kings from Canterbury, and Vinehall from north of Hastings. This set up a repeat final from last Saturday when the two teams played each other at the Russell House tournament. Granville started strongly, and although at one point, Russell House came within one goal of us, Granville stepped up a gear to win 10 – 3. A convincing victory where the girls displayed a mature understanding of the game, and competed with great spirit and respect for all the other teams.
