On Monday 23rd June, the senior netball teams played friendly matches against Claremont  High School who do not play in the same league as Wynberg Girls’ High School.


 Although it was a friendly  match, both teams were extremely competitive. Wynberg was able steal many of Claremont’s centre passes and maintain a constant lead. By half time, Wynberg had been able to maintain a steady pace with the score at 13-2. It was also a bit of a learning curve for the shooters as they had to step out of their comfort zone to collect balls. The team enjoyed the game and are very proud of their victory.
