The annual tournament, India’s only mixed teams event for U16 players is a much anticipated and held during school summer holidays in quite the hottest weather possible. This year, we were lucky that we got rain on each night that cooled down things somewhat – yet, the heat remained a challenge, especially for Froebel School who were defending champions.
The One Nation Netball Cup is organised by the Netball & Education Trust in conjunction with the Naz Foundation’s Goal Program. This year’s tournament was sponsored by WomenWin, for more on WomenWin and their programmes –
