The EPS Mixed Netball team has had a very successful first semester! We began the term with a great day at the EPS Societies Fair and recruited 15 new members. We had many of our members graduate last year which meant a big recruitment drive was vital to the team. This also meant that we had nearly a brand new team training and playing together each week, which is really exciting!
Our training sessions began in October and we spent the first three sessions getting to know everyone and recapping the basics. We successfully got around 20 people to every training session, meaning we had to purchase new equipment so that everyone could improve their skills. The dedication from the whole team has allowed us to improve so much! We initially struggled at the beginning of the semester in our games, but I created specific drills that targeted our areas of weakness. We then implemented these into our game play and we can really see the results!
We finished this semester 4th in the league and can’t wait to get started again next semester! Every team we played put their all into every game which led to us having 4 wins, 1 draw and 4 loses. We had 6 of our members in the running for our league’s player of the match. We also pushed through after a few hard games and even played in the snow! Everyone always brought their A-game, showed massive dedication and really did the team proud.
Our newly elected Social Sec Lucy, successfully ran two socials this term. The first, which was close to the beginning of the semester, allowed us to bond and make friends with our new members. The trip to Circo was fun and exciting, and will hopefully be repeated after Christmas. We had our Christmas social at Toby Carvery which everyone loved; there were options for everyone and all our members loved it.
