THE first RGS Superball saw the England men’s netball team overcome Evesham Reds at the University of Worcester.

They put on an exhibition of power, pace and skill to win 31-14 in front of a crowd of more than 600.

The Royal Grammar School Worcester initiative featured two matches and entertainment from a pupils’ dance troupe and two mascots.

Reds were honoured during the evening for winning National Premier League Three.

“It was a fantastic occasion for the school, the Evesham club and netball in general,” said Reds head coach Steve McCleod.

“The players showed to a wide audience what netball is all about — the skill, speed, agility and teamwork. They put on a show to be proud of — a marvellous advert for the game.”

The earlier match saw West Midlands League team Evesham Whites defeat the RGS Worcester first team, who are the under 19s county champions, 33-16.

Whites used their experience to good effect and reflected their current excellent league form.

RGS director of sport Tim Curtis said: “The audience was wowed by the skills on display and I’m delighted RGS was able to promote the event to the wider community.”

All proceeds from the match are going to Noah’s Ark Trust with the final total to be announced.
