The Merton School Sport Partnership held its annual Year 5/6 Quicksticks Hockey Borough Competition on Friday 15th November 2019 at Raynes Park High School. Quicksticks is a modified version of hockey suitable for primary aged children. Games consist of four players on pitch with no goalkeepers; this makes it easier for primary schools to play, as accessing a goal keeping kit is a tricky and costly affair. Quicksticks hockey also requires the players to rotate each game, giving them the chance to act as a coach, scorer and to give all players an equal chance to take part.
The Morden Cluster Girls Football Tournament took place on Wednesday 13th November 2019 at the welcoming facilities of Harris Academy Morden. 10 teams attended from 7 schools across the Morden quarter and it was refreshing to see and hear a build-up of excitement as the squads with a maximum of 10 girls arrived at the AstroTurf pitches.
The Sun, Rain, Wind and finally the Sun again didn’t deter our seasoned High 5 Netballers at this year’s Borough Finals. The top four teams from each cluster worked hard in the ranging weather conditions throughout the borough finals.
In the group stages we saw some very close results across the courts with the children determined to do their best and work well with their team mates. With half times in every match there were plenty of rotations to ensure players tried their hand across all areas of the court.
