Last weekend, the University of Bath was the setting for the South West U16 Regional Playoff finals. The top four teams from South West U16 Division 1 were in action, contesting two coveted places at the National Clubs U16 Finals in May.
The teams were: Hucclecote who finished top with a 100% record in the league, Team Bath, Lawn and Team Jets. The final placing saw Hucclecote win the tournament with three wins out of three, second were Team Bath, third Team Jets with Lawn in fourth spot.
A great day of Netball, well played by all four teams with Hucclecote and Team Bath representing the South West in the National Finals on 2-3rd May at the Redbridge Sports Centre, Barkingside, Essex.

NSW, Wiltshire Netball and especially Abbeymeads Netball Club are sad to lose a valued member of ‘Team White’ as Christina Davidson (nee Barrow) moves to Manchester to take up her new role as International Umpiring Manager for the International Netball Federation.
Over the past 7/8 years Christina has flown through the umpiring awards and is one of only a handful of active A award umpires in the region.
She has also achieved the theory part of the ADL tutoring qualification – but due to being so busy umpiring National Prem games has not been able to complete the practical element. She has also used her skills and experience to mentor younger umpires. She was also a valued member of the Team Bath Superleague and England Netball International match bench team.
She has helped develop Abbeymeads Netball Club to the large club it is today by keeping the administration in order – dotting the Is and crossing the Ts!
I’m sure you will all join me in wishing her (and husband Ross) great success with this new venture.
