The Inter County Championship was full of excitement, with competitions, inflatables, music, special guests and more filling the weekend!
One parent wanted to recognise the hard work that went into the event and said, “I wanted to congratulate Wales Netball on a fantastic regionals tournament over the weekend at House of Sport in Cardiff. What a great weekend we had. It was so well organised with so much fun, sportsmanship and hard work going on.”
“Whether they won, lost or drew, it would have meant the world to every single person in that tournament to be able to play netball at that level, especially after such a rubbish two years.”
Wales Netball would like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers, athletes, parents, spectators, and Wales Netball staff members who came to the event and made it a great weekend. We hope everyone had a great time!
