Around 100 pupils from schools across Jersey will be participating at the annual Jersey Netball Association's "Deutsche Bank Summer Festival", which takes place next week.

The Summer Festival forms part of the Jersey Netball Association's development programme, which continues to be sponsored by Deutsche Bank. It will take place at the Oakfield courts at Hautlieu School, 9am - 12pm between 21st and 25th July.

Throughout the week, the participants, who are between seven and twelve years old, will be split into teams to take part in competitions which are aimed at testing their agility, coordination and netball skills.

Members of the Jersey Netball Association will take on the roles of team leaders and team helpers, most of whom have actually participated in the Festival in the past and therefore know the format.

The highlight of the week will be a tournament on the Friday morning, which will be split into two sections, to cater for the range of ages. A presentation ceremony rewarding the winners of the tournament and the other competitions will round off the whole event.
