Anglian Water Reigns Victorious at Workplace Netball

By Zoe Conville on June 15th, 2016 - comments

Businesses and organisations from across Lincolnshire came together on Monday evening to take part in a county-wide netball tournament.

Teams from the University of Lincoln, John Greed, and Siemens, were just some of the 14 teams that joined in the fun on Monday evening.

The evening kicked off around 6pm, the teams were split into four groups with the top teams from each group advancing to the play-offs.

There was definitely a competitive atmosphere growing with every team fighting for a win and a place in the final at Priory of Lincoln City Academy on Skellingthorpe Road.

At around 8.15pm, as a black cloud loomed ominously overhead, the play offs got underway.

After several high scoring, closely fought matches in the spitting rain, Fosse Way and LED reigned victorious, making it to the Workplace Challenge Netball Final.

The battle for third and fourth place was cut short with the rain sheeting down, leaving St Lawrence & City of Lincoln tied for third place.

The final score in the last game of the evening was close, with Anglian Water LED just clinching the title from Fosse Way.

Final standings were:

1st Anglian Water LED

2nd Fosse Way

= 3rd St Lawrence & City Lincoln

5th St Hughs

6th University of Lincoln

7th Streets

8th Positive Futures

9th East Lindsey

10th Siemens

= 11th John Greed & Active Lincolnshire

13th Ambitions

14th LCC Financial
