We chalked up another successful event!

In accordance with our tradition of running well organised events, every match started right on time and everyone agreed that the Netball tournament of the 20th Maccabiah was a huge success!

In addition to junior and senior teams from Australia, GB and South Africa, Israel Netball welcomed for the first time a senior team from Argentina! Both Australian teams won gold while GB took the silver and congrats to our seniors who beat South Africa to win the bronze medal.

We are extremely proud of our junior team who played superbly and came very close to beating the South African team. Considering that two of the young players had never even heard of our favourite sport this time a year ago, that was no mean feat by any standards!

Check out the results here.

Once again, we'd like to thank our wonderful umpires for their professionalism and unstinting support - to Rachael, Sue, Alice, Chris, Julie, Rhian and Ann: come back soon, you're welcome here any time!


Jtown wins League Finals!

As predicted, the spectators were treated to some wonderful netball and two very closely fought battles in Modi'in on Thursday 8th June!

In the first match, with the low score testifying to some great defending by both teams, Tel Aviv won the bronze medal in their match against Jerusalem Mercaz with a score of 24-18.

Jtown, undefeated by Ra'anana throughout the year, once again proved to be the stronger of the two teams. After taking the lead early in the first quarter, they went on to win the gold medal (35-29) for the second time since the league was first established in 2009.

Awards were presented to Martine Bernstein from Tel Aviv (MVP), Tikva Clements from Ra'anana (Most Improved) and Nat Tchelet from Modi'in (Sportsmanship).

Well done to all the teams!
