Netball players on a roll on Swiss tour

Fifteen pupils from Fifth Year and Sixth Form spent four days in the Swiss city of Geneva on a successful netball tour.

After landing in Switzerland on Friday afternoon, the touring party checked into their accommodation and established their bearings before getting ready to train with Swiss Netball the following day.

The girls didn’t take long to acclimatise to their new surroundings at the International School of Geneva and thoroughly enjoyed working alongside their European counterparts.

On the Saturday and Sunday it was game time as the girls played four matches against Swiss Netball’s under 17 squad. The hard work and preparation put in at school before the trip, and the great coaching on the tour itself, served them well as they secured victories in three of the games.

Off the court, the fifteen pupils had a great time visiting Lake Geneva and seeing the famous Jet d’Eau. A trip around the old town gave the girls an insight into the city’s wonderful past and a tour of the United Nations office, their European headquarters, demonstrated the city’s place as a global hub for diplomacy.

Head of Girls’ P.E. Mrs Laura Goddard crowned the tour a success: “The trip to Geneva was an excellent experience for all of the girls and they played some fantastic netball throughout the weekend.

“Geneva is a beautiful city and everyone enjoyed exploring the many things that it had to offer.”

We would like to thank the following sponsors for helping make the trip such a success:

  • Enterprise Homecare
  • Globe Café
  • Redundancy Claims
