(Quick disclaimer, there are hardly any photos of me as I was the chief photographer on the trip, but all these photos are my own)
Netball is something me and Jess really enjoy, It’s active, and it brings people together as friends and teams.
So on Friday at around 3 pm, our netball teams set of to Condover hall in Shropshire, to play in a netball tournament. it was about a 4 and a half hour journey due to traffic but we finally got there in time for dinner, we then were put into our rooms and slept very well 🙂
We woke up reasonably early in the morning, had breakfast, and then spent the morning doing activities which the tour company had arranged. Jess did laser quest with some girls from her team and I did Trapeze and high ropes with others from my team. It was exciting and very enjoyable, and all the staff were so lovely, Condover hall was beautiful, and the grounds were amazing.
We had a quick lunch in the canteen, and then spent the afternoon playing netball, As me and Jess are different ages, we are in different teams, but it just so happens we are both the captains of our teams! It was tiring and exciting and both our teams won and lost a few matches, so overall we were happy.
We then had dinner and spent the evening in our rooms chilling.
On Sunday We Played the rest of our matches, and were exhausted by the end! Although mine and Jess’ teams didn’t win, we were so proud of ourselves and teammates and couldn’t have asked for more. Throughout the tour, when someone did something silly, they had to wear ‘the Tutu’ – it was very very funny, and obviously on Sunday Jess tripped over a tree root and sprained her ankle – so she was presented with the Tutu. Lets just say she wasn’t impressed. Overall we Loved the tour and are looking forward to the next one!
