Schools Competitions

We run the initial county round of the National Schools Tournament, for U19, U16 and U14 age groups. The county rounds will take place in the Autumn term 2019. The winners and runners up of all three age groups will represent Gloucestershire in the Netball South West regional round of the National Schools Tournament the following January. The winners and runners up from each age group in this round will then represent the South West region in the national finals.

In order to maximise the competition available to juniors, we also run a May Dent Tournament for U15 school teams within Gloucestershire. The tournament was first introduced in 1979 and named in honour of a former Chair of Gloucestershire Netball and Mayor of Cheltenham.

Primary Schools participate in district leagues, playing the High 5 format of the game. The winners of each district play in a county final.

County Tournament dates are:

U19 Tuesday 8th October 1.00pm 

U16 Tuesday 24th September 2.00pm 

U14 Monday 11th November 1.00pm
