11th October 2018
On Thursday 11th October 2018 we went to a netball tournament at a huge court. There were many other teams there, when I first saw them I felt as if we were going to be humiliated and we would lose all the matches but we carried on and played our first match and drew two matches in the morning. It was incredibly fun and we played really well. In the afternoon, we played in a new group and made it until the semi-finals but then we had to go home. It was a great experience and we really enjoyed ourselves, it was one of the best tournaments!
On Thursday 2nd November, we went to the netball tournament at Pitshanger Park. I felt petrified at first however with my team’s support we were able to win many matches. We all were in different positions and were eager to win. It was extremely difficult at first but later into the afternoon it started to become easier. Instead of giving up we started to practise. After we had warmed up, the matches started. Working together had made everyone determined to win. Sometimes we didn’t win but we did not argue about it. It was brilliant as I had an amazing team. So we were able to win more matches than we thought we would.
