Winners Mental Health Team
NHS staff battle it out to be crowned Netball Champions 2019
08 April 2019

Last month staff from across all services of Isle of Wight NHS Trust took part in the 2nd annual netball tournament. Ten teams participated in the event with the hope of being ‘crowned’ the netball champions of 2019.

The first round was divided into two groups of five, with the Mental Health service winning one and the Therapies team the other. The battle for 3rd and 4th place followed, with the Ambulance Service taking 3rd place and the Finance department 4th.

The final between the Mental Health Service and Therapies team was an exciting and hard fought match but ultimately the Mental Health team managed to pull away to secure the trophy for the second time, and be crowned the netball champions of 2019!

Organiser and Isle of Wight NHS Trust staff member, Tina Scovell said “the day was a great success and full of comradery between the teams.” Tina continued “this would not have been possible without the dedication of all those that took part as well as Isle of Wight Netball Coach, Carol O’Brien for organising the event with me, and all our amazing volunteers that helped to umpire, ball run and keep score during the day.”

The participating teams were:

Mental Health Service                                        Shanklin Medical Centre

Memory Service                                                Pathology Service

Community Rehabilitation                                  Ambulance Service

School Nurses and Health Visitors                     Therapies
