Birchwood Grove CP School


Netball is hugely popular at Birchwood Grove, and we have a proud history of success throughout the years! One of our most recent honours came in 2018, where our A Team took part in the Mid Sussex Area Tournament, finishing 3rd! They did Birchwood Grove extremely proud and exhibited great sportsmanship and teamwork throughout the tournament. The popularity is such that we often field 3 teams, in both friendly matches against local schools, and local and regional tournaments against schools from further afield. 


KS2 Netball club is run by Miss Whinder and Mrs Whinder, on a Monday after-school from 3.15pm - 4.15 p.m.

There will also be extra Netball squad sessions as and when required.

Match Reports:

Monday 11th October 2021:

A Team

The A team played first and wore yellow bibs. Chloe was their team captain and played 3 times, whereas everyone else on the A team played 2 times. They scored 1 goal, but sadly St. Lawrence scored more.

B Team

The B team played second and wore blue bibs. Emma and Zara were the team captains and played three times, and everyone else played twice. They sadly didn’t score, but St. Lawrence did, so they won.

Even though we lost, Birchwood Grove still played well – St. Lawrence might of just had more time to practice.  It was a great way to start the season after so long!
