We set off this morning to North West Kent College to play the first of our games for the tour against the Kent County Rep Teams.
As our girls had only meet a few days previously and had never stepped on the court together it was always going to take a little time for the teams to gel. The girls were a little nervous but excited to finally hit the court.
Our third grade started slowly with Kent quickly jumping to a 5-1 lead. From that point on it was all Wanderers as the girls played some lovely team netball to come away with a great first up win.
The second grade team faced up against a very tall, athletic and well drilled team. While the girls worked very hard it was a tough match with Kent coming away with the win.
The first grade team also faced a tough challenge but started strongly, taking it right up to the opposition early. The team chemistry of the Kent team shone through with them coming home with the win. Our girls showed really positive signs and will look to improve in our next game.
A lovely post game supper and mingling with the opposition before boarding the bus home.
