The National Schools Competition, in association with the British Army, is the biggest school’s competition in the netball calendar.

The competition consists of three age groups; U14, U16 & U19 and commences at either an Arena or County Round.

The schools go on a remarkable journey to earn their place at this prestigious national event, with schools finishing as winners or runners up in each age group of the county rounds progressing through to the regional round of the competition.

The winners and runners up from each of the nine regions will then take a place in the National Finals which take place in March every year.

The 2023 East Regional School finals were once again held at Stanborough School, Welwyn Garden City, on Saturday 28th January 2023.  Despite the very chilly weather there was no shortage of excitement as the teams arrived.

As teachers, players and volunteers arrived to set up their base camps for the day, the girls from every team and age group took to court to warm up. The buzz for the day was already in place as the first whistle came to signal the start of the first round of games.
