Netball stand-off

THE PINE HILL Primary Schools’ Netball championship could be shifting from the hard courts to the law courts less than one week after the start of this year’s competition.

Yesterday, at the Salisbury Courts in Newbury, St George, Mount Tabor Primary refused to take the court to play Blackman and Gollop B team saying they, along with the other teams in the Pamala Proverbs Zone, were not prepared to compete with the Staple Grove side.

Earlier, Mount Tabor had defeated St Luke’s 3-1 while Blackman and Gollop had not played their scheduled first match as Cuthbert Moore, the original host for the series, did not attend the games since the cow itch problem had prevented the school from getting the playing gear for their netballers.
