Gibraltar Hockey and Netball Tour

A group of 23 Senior School hockey and netball players, from years II – V, benefited from some intensive match-play, high quality coaching and team bonding opportunities on the summer tour to Gibraltar.

The students were first put through their paces by a member of the Gibraltar Hockey Association, who led a series of intense skills and teamwork drills. The girls played a number of 7-a-side and 11-a-side matches against some of Gibraltar’s top players.

Towards the end of the week the focus switched to netball with England international, Mikki Austin, providing two master class sessions. The girls then got some match practice in with a fun, yet competitive, mini tournament among themselves.

In between training and matches the girls took advantage of a range of marvellous cultural and social opportunities including a trip to the markets of Morocco, a hike to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar, dolphin spotting on a boat cruise, ice skating, and lots of team bonding over delicious local cuisine.
