The 11 teams were initially split into two groups, with each team playing every other team in their group. Following completion of the round robin group stage, each team played a final placing match against the equivalent placed team from the other group.

The event was supported by four Year 9 Sports Leaders from Hinchingbrooke School who ably umpired every match with growing confidence.
Doug Finlayson, Hunts SSP Partnership Manager said, “The standard of Netball was exceptionally high and it was great to see the level of improvement from all teams as the event progressed. Thank you to all schools that attended and made for an exciting tournament. Congratulations to Thongsley Fields and Buckden who will progress to Bee Netball county finals alongside Somersham and St Helen’s as Huntingdonshire’s representatives.
