Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Academy of Sports organised a Ladies Netball Tournament on Sunday 11th December 2022.
At -4 degrees on a Sunday Morning, over 70 ladies from London and Bolton, aged between 12-45 made their way to Purushottam Mahal to take part in this tournament. A decade and a half after the first ever tournament, it was an annual event many ladies were looking forward to.
The day brought together young and old, beginners to advanced players to not only play the sport but to develop team work, leadership and social skills. Participants thoroughly enjoyed the day. One of the team captains said
"It was great to get to know the team members as we battled our way through the rounds! Although we didn't win in the final, we had a brilliant time along the way. I'm really excited about playing more regularly."
The day couldn't have been such a success without the support of our admin team, the kitchen team and enthusiastic captains; all of whom played vital roles in their own way.
The new year kick-starts weekly Netball sessions on Sunday Mornings.
