The Twizel Junior netball teams wrapped up their their season last weekend, while the Senior team heads to finals. It's been a great year and a relief to have a full season, especially after 2021!

Our Year 3-4 team finished Finals Day with a win. This grade doesn’t give an overall finish but these girls improved immensely throughout the weeks. 

The Twizel Strikers finished 6th for the season, while Twizel Storm finished 5th with a hard-fought final game seeing them win by 1 point!

Twizel Lightning finished their grade in 2nd place overall. This team started the season in another grade and were moved up mid-season, so coming 2nd in a higher grade is an amazing achievement ladies you should all be super proud!

Twizel Volt’s who are currently sitting at the top of the table will play in the Final At 12 pm this Saturday against St Kevin’s Gold. If you are in Oamaru pop to the courts and cheer the team on. Let's bring the cup back to Twizel!

If you have a Yr2 (Yr3 next year) or above student interested in playing netball next year please send an email to [email protected] to express your interest or have a chat to Chelsea in the school office, as we will be ordering more uniforms and would like to get an estimate on what to order. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Netball fever is certainly spreading throughout the school!
