No sooner was the school’s new MUGA completed and handed over to us, we had our very first external letting, in the guise of a local netball league who have relocated over to Longdean.
Hemel Hempstead and District League have been playing for over 25 years based at Adeyfield School, but from now on, will be based here at Longdean.
They have 3 Divisions - Premier, Division One and Division Two and there are currently 9 teams in each Division.
Games are played on a Saturday morning and there are 4 time slots: 09.30 - 10.30 / 10.45 - 11.45/ 12.00 - 13.00 / 13.15 - 14.15
Their website is www.hemelnetball.co.uk which will have contact details for anyone who wants to get involved. They also have their own League Facebook page.
Coordinator Sarah McClement reported ‘The season got off to a great start on Saturday and everyone seemed to really like the new courts’
The school is looking forward to opening its facilities to more community groups, for information about potential lettings please contact premises manager, Andy Wheeler.
