Versatility Tournament is a successful start to Easter break

Despite the drop in temperature last Saturday, 54 netball players from around Gloucestershire turned out at All Saints Academy, Cheltenham for a leap into the unknown.

Gloucestershire Netball's Versatility Tournament saw seven mixed-club, mixed-position and mixed-ability teams take to the courts, with players in randomly selected positions.

As bibs were being drawn you could hear the good humoured moans and chuckles as players were challenged to play in positions they were not used to. The round robin tournament provided each team player with plenty of variety as subs were rotated on and positions changed at every break.
