North Yorkshire Jets have been crowned champions at the inaugural ParaNetball School Championship.
Six teams made their way to the Lee Westwood Sports Centre at Nottingham Trent University on Friday 14th June for the event, which is tailored to people with SEN and learning disabilities.
Officials were on hand to educate and guide people through the game and the rules, as well as inspire them to continue to engage with this wonderful sport.
North Yorkshire Jets completed a clean sweep in the morning’s stage with victories over Crusaders (7-0), Sheffield Concord Net4all (1-9) and North Yorkshire Knights (3-0).
Westcroft School also started strongly with two wins (8-0 vs. Joseph Whitaker and 2-1 vs. Crusaders) and a 1-1 draw with North Yorkshire Knights.
North Yorkshire Jets were looking to continue their fine form heading into the afternoon session but started with a 5-1 defeat to Westcroft School – their only blot on an otherwise perfect day.
However, they quickly bounced back to seal a 10-0 win against Joseph Whitaker in their next game.
Meanwhile, Westcroft School made it two from two with a commanding 7-1 victory over Sheffield Concord Net4all.
Joseph Whitaker recorded their first win of the day in a narrow 3-2 victory over Sheffield Concord Net4all, setting up a fifth-place play-off between the two sides.
And it was a repeat outcome with Joseph Whitaker running out 4-1 winners on this occasion.
Crusaders came third after seeing off North Yorkshire Knights 2-0 in the third-place play-off.
North Yorkshire Jets and Westcroft School once again went head to head in a fantastic final with the former hoping to exact revenge for their earlier defeat and the latter hoping for a repeat performance to take the title.
It was North Yorkshire Jets who came out on top as they edged out Westcroft School in a closely-fought 4-2 victory.
