The two hour event saw teams split into two leagues and play a round robin format to decide who would then be entered into the finals and play off competition.

Leaders from South Notts Colleges helped to referee the matches and saw some good defending skills, teamwork and sportsmanship from all the teams involved.

The winnerís league saw Robin Hood, Southwark, South Wilford and Whitemoor A team fight it out for the top 3 places and Jubilee, Whitemoor B team and Burford play for the plate winnerís medals.

Unfortunately due to illness and squad sizes Old Basford A and B Team, and Seagrave played in the event however were unable to medal as they didnít have the correct number of players.

Well done to all the pupils who played in this challenging event! Each player received a School Sport Nottingham certificate, and the top three winnerís league teams all received medals. The plate winners also received gold medals for their performance.
