The competition followed an initial group stage round robin format, allowing schools to play 3 matches, followed by the top 4 placed schools progressing through to the semi-finals, finishing with a final. The round robin matches were extremely close, with each team showcasing the knowledge and understanding of the game they have learnt within PE lessons or extra-curricular clubs within their school. As the event progressed the children became more confident with the rules and further excelled.
