Chigwell Hosts Annual Netball and Football Festivals

Chigwell School held the annual U11 primary schools’ netball and football festivals recently.  Fourteen netball teams competed and there were some excellent displays of netball across all six courts.  There were some extremely well-matched games played and all players appeared to be enjoying themselves.  Every team then had one final play-off match against the team finishing in the same position in the other group. This was a great way to end the day with everyone getting one more match before placings were established.  The festival gave the girls a wonderful opportunity to get some intensive play which hopefully created high levels of enthusiasm for the girls, their coaches and the spectators for the coming season.  The girls gathered together at the end of the festival for the announcement of the results and to celebrate their achievements. 

Meanwhile, alongside the netball festival twenty one teams from local primary schools took part in the annual U11 football festival. Teams were placed in three pools of seven and played six friendly matches.  Each game was competitive in its own right but the event was a festival of football, the quality of which was excellent.  Most importantly of all, the players performed in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. 

Congratulations to all the schools that took part and to those who worked so hard behind the scenes to make the event happen.
