Dorset WI Teams ‘giggle and wiggle’ at SW Walking Netball Festival
A Walking Netball Festival recently took place at Westfields Academy, Yeovil. Eleven Walking Netball teams across the SW region including three WI teams, from Dorset, took part.
It was organised by Sarah Clark, England Netball SW Region Development Officer
There was lots of giggles, a few fumbles, generous applause and a sporting spirit across all matches, both on and off the court.
WI Teams from Child Okeford WI, Lulworth and Wool WI’s, Studland and Swanage WI’s played hard fought competitive games against long established Walking Netball teams from Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon
One WI player said: “ I am just so glad we came and hope to play against more WI Walking Netball teams soon”
The new Dorset WI Walking Netball Ambassador, Gaynor Waring, was on hand to support WI teams, take photos and plan for future WI Walking Netball events across Dorset.
In the ‘Just for Fun’ section, Chippenham Gold team were declared winners after a recount.
Child Okeford WI came = 3rd with Budmouth and were the highest placed WI team at the festival.
