The event was organised by ESM Events, while RU Active Netball were the technical partners of the GEMS Netball Cup. James Bowring, Senior Manager at ESM Events, was extremely happy about the competition levels in the tournament.
“Compared to other sports at school level, there aren’t many Netball tournaments. Which is why the GEMS Netball Cup is aimed at being a signature event in the schools Netball calendar and will aim to grow bigger every year. It was great to see so many schools, and children, involved with this event, and the range of abilities competing.
