June 2016 - Baptism of Fire for Young Netballers

Nine young netballers from Horsham Community Netball Club enjoyed their first community tournament today at K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley in the U11 section. They conceded various advantages to their opponents - height, age and experience levels - but battled gamely nonetheless and despite losing all of their matches against more established clubs such as Mid Sussex, Rudgwick and NRG will be better for having undertaken the challenge and will now know what to expect when they undertake similar ventures in the future. They conceded quite a few goals but will take lots of consolation from scoring three of their own.

April 2016 - Stars Dazzle at First Netball Fixture

Local junior netball clubs Horsham Community and Storrington Stars both played their first ever match fixture at Collyer’s in Horsham on Saturday and it was Stars who emerged victorious 27-6. Stars started up three years ago and Horsham 18 months ago so playing a match was an important milestone to negotiate and both clubs are planning more competitive outings to keep up the progress.

Stars had a degree of age and height advantage over their opponents and after a tight first quarter which they sneaked 4-3 they accelerated courtesy of some excellent shooting and made Horsham pay for some overlong passing which gave too many opportunities for interceptions.

Cameron Wright was excellent for Horsham with his boundless energy and jumping providing regular disruption to Stars’ flow. Other creditable features to Horsham’s play included Ella East’s sharp passing, Amy Richardson’s industry and the attacking thrust of Shelby Braybrooke and Imogen Wyllie.

All players benefitted from the opportunity to put their training into competitive action. Stars have a tournament coming up in East Grinstead in early May so this game put them in good stead for that bigger challenge.

Horsham players will be back to club practice this Wednesday at Collyer’s, 5-6.15pm. Contact Ian.ford@horsham.gov.uk if you want to get involved.
