Mitcham Cluster KS2 Handball Festival

The Mitcham Cluster Handball Festival took place on Tuesday 18th October 2016 at St Mark’s CofE Academy. Five schools from the cluster attended the day: Bond, Gorringe Park, Links, St Thomas of Canterbury and William Morris. Due to only having five schools competing, a round robin format was used with each school playing each other twice.

Schools arrived early and were ready and raring to play some fantastic handball. This was our first participation event of the year which meant no scores were being recorded and the main focus was on enjoyment and participation.
