Netball

The netball team started in 2004 as a drunken rant from a few girls who reminisced about playing in school all those years ago. Not all of us had had a good experience of sport at school, so we decided to make it as fun as possible. Sharky, a local with our sponsors (The Plough), took the first step of hiring us a court. Finding free courts was difficult and many a time we played on junior basketball courts, (including ones we had to jump walls to get at!!) A year later the Cowboys were clever enough to spot our outrageous debauchery, and invited us into their madness!

We have since grown to 3 teams in the Avon League; in divisions 3, 4 and 8.

We have 3 qualified umpires, 6 in training, and 3 qualified coaches. All training has been financed by our kitty.

Netball Reports

Stolen from facebook: Swift match report from tonight’s friendly in case you’re interested: a mixture of 6s, 11s and new recruits, including one who came for the very first time, took on a Div 7 Brislington team. In order to give everyone at least half a competitive game, there were lots of substitutions and position changes (as well as taking turns to play Brislington’s WD!) We held it together well and were only behind by one goal at halftime. We launched some strong attacks in the third quarter and moved ahead by 4, but...

Netball Friendly Results

Stollen from facebook: Miserable weather, slippery courts and a friendly just days after Berrow, but Easton Cowgirls still come home with a win! A mixed division team of Helen, Jo, Cat, Yo, Misty, Rachel and Kate – in a great first game in only her second week with us! – took on a mixed Div 9 and Div 6 team from Doves. The final score was Cowgirls 16 – Doves 8. Big thanks to Linner for umpiring, Misty’s boyfriend Pete for scoring, and everyone for turning out after such atrocious weather. Well played all and bring on...

Netball Tournament

Jo reports thus: Well us birds had our end of season tournament on Saturday. As netball is not an Olympic sport the organisers decided to make everyone represent an Olympic country. Wales was not allowed (we had costumes lined up for that one) so we opted to represent France due to an overload of frilly knickers.. We got battered in the first round and won 1 game out of 5, then we were all reseeded and we went on a winning streak winning all of our round 2 games which put us in the final! Then we lost the final to Hawaii. Everyone had a great...
