Republic of Ireland wins the Open Challenge 2018
Five teams competed in this year’s Open Challenge which took place over the 10-13 May weekend: Gibraltar, Israel, Republic of Ireland and our two most recent members who took to the court at an NE event for the first time, Isle of Man and UAE. The Republic of Ireland had to fight hard for their four wins and their gold medal. The winners of the silver medal, Isle of Man, had to be decided by goal average because UAE and Gibraltar also won two of their four matches. Click here for the results. The Player of the Championship was awarded jointly to two outstanding players: Ashley Hall, captain of the Isle of Man team and 16-year-old Ayelet Glick of Israel.
As part of the tournament, the Gibraltar Netball Association along with the GSLA and Government of Gibraltar held a reception for Netball Europe. Minister of Sports Steven Linares (shown with Christina Davidson, International Umpiring Manager and Moira Gomez, President of GNA) welcomed to the Rock all players and officials including umpires James Thomas, Ian Fuller, Kate Stephenson, Anne Abraitis, Jo Lilly and UAP Cheryl Danson.
Many thanks to our hosts the Gibraltar Netball Association for running such a successful event and making us all feel so welcome!
Huge Congrats to England Netball on their stunning win against Australia!
England beat Australia 52-51 in a real cliff-hanger to win gold at the Commonwealth Games, the greatest result in their history!!!!
Netball was featured at the Games for the first time in 1998 and this was first time that the final was not between Australia and New Zealand, which makes the England victory even more dramatic.
