Carnival is a big thing in Pewsey: wine race, beer race and the main procession. This year 4 girls from Game Of Throws netball team in Manchester who we play against in Spain also joined us. While they were down we took the opportunity to organise Pewsey Whites first game on Saturday morning. A brilliant game with a close final score of 16-12 to G.O.T with Scarlet getting POM.
Wine race was last weekend and saw us dressing up as Calendar girls with a netball twist. Tied together in teams of 3 or 4 you make your way around Pewsey drinking wine at each stop. We made it around in one piece minus Elaine's shoe! Beer race was next which involved decorating our wheelbarrow. Women In Sport was our theme for Beer race and Carnival with everyone taking a different sport. Sadly we have to wait until next year to do it all again, but no doubt they'll be another excuse soon enough for more fancy dress!
I hope you have all had an enjoyable summer. Just a reminder...tomorrow is our first netball session back, meeting at St Francis 7.30-9pm. I look forward to seeing you all there. As well as welcoming some new faces, Trudie our new coach will be joining us from tomorrow.
Wednesday 21st August will be a pre-season session, a good chance to get back into it, catch up and welcome new faces.
This year Pewsey Netball will be running Squad Selection for the first time.
We will have 2 squad selection dates, 28th August and 4th September. An external coach has been invited to assist with this process. She will advise on who she believes is suited to Division 1 play, Division 4 play and who needs a bit more time before playing competitively. The sessions will be informal and everyone will get the chance to play. Prior to the sessions everyone will be given the opportunity to put themselves forward for 2 or 3 preferred positions.
Players will be spoken to individually once a decision has been made. If someone is suited to Division 1 then they will have the option to play in Division 1, Division 4 or they may choose not to play competitively. If someone is suited to Division 4 they will have the option to play in Division 4 or they may choose not to play competitively. Those players who it is felt are not quite ready for Division 4 will be given the opportunity to develop further through training and organised friendly matches.
Please do attend both sessions if possible. If you are unable to attend either of the dates these players will be ‘squad selected’ on an individual basis at a further training session. They will definitely still be considered.
If you are new to Pewsey Netball Club please get in touch, either via email or the contact form. Let us know which dates you can attend and your preferred positions if you know! Any questions at all please get in touch. I really want to stress this isn’t something to worry about.

Members of the club dolled themselves up in 1920's glamour for a night out in Marlborough at the Burbage Cricket Club's Peaky Blinders Ball.
It was a fantastic event and I think it's safe to say there were a few sore heads (and feet!) on Sunday morning.
The girls were disappointed however that there was no special appearance from Thomas Shelby himself...
Pewsey Blacks have had a rocky start to the season being promoted from division 2 up to 1 and loosing all of the defence.
Suzie Samuels - congratulations on the birth of your new baby girl.
Hanna Daw - congratulations on your second pregnancy.
Alice Nutland - we wish you all the best in your future achievements.
After a reshuffle and bringing Sara Mills up to GK, coach Becka into GD and bringing Sinem from GA/GS to WD. The team have started well but face some tough teams!
They currently sit 7th in the table.
Pewsey Reds have had a solid start to their only second season! They have had some tough games - few movements around within the team.
Captain Lesley and Vice Kim have led this team out strongly and hopefully pushing up the table into the latter part of the season!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE GIRLS FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON!!
Welcome back ladies.
Who can't wait to get back on court?? MEEEEEE.
Training starts again Wednesday 29th August.
The committee have bought some very exciting new equipment which we will be using first session back in a well liked CIRCUITS.
Two teams again this year, new faces to the club, old faces back, new committee members.
Happy Season 2018 Everyone.
11 Pewsey ladies played in a fun versatility tournament in Devizes in order to say goodbye to a lady who has umpired/coached Devizes teams for years. She even taught our coach netball at the age of 8!
The sun was shining, drinks flowing, picnic blankets out and a really fun day (despite a few weirdly shaped sun tans/burns the next day).
We came 10th out of 14th and didn't win any raffle prizes (not even any alcohol)!!
Onwards and upwards.
Becky and Sinem are organising a Charity Tournament of our own so EYES PEELED for news.
