The Wimbledon Cluster competitions kicked off in fine form this year with a Rugby World Cup 2015 inspired Year 5/6 Tag Rugby Tournament at Wimbledon Chase on Friday 16th October 2015. It was fantastic to see every school represented and 15 teams in total.

The 2015 Year 5/6 Wimbledon Cluster High 5 Netball competition was held at Ricards Lodge and, yet again, every school in the cluster was represented. On a windswept, cold day it would be hard to play flowing netball but all teams turned up ready to give it their very best.
Due to the popularity of the event, the schools were split into three groups, with schools’ B teams playing in their own, separate league.
