Our netball team took part in a qualifying tournament today for the Hampshire Games in June. They had already had to qualify for this stage by finishing in the top two of a previous competition earlier in the year to make it this far as had all of the other competing teams. The standard of play was therefore very high indeed. The teams were spilt into pools with the top two from each group making it through to the semi-final. Fair Oak began with a three on loss to Wellstead. Despite the scoreline, our team put in a very good display. This was followed up with a five nil loss to Freegrounds and then another loss, this time two nil against Droxford. These results meant that Fair Oak finished bottom of the group and would play off for seventh place overall against Netley Abbey. In a close game it was Netley Abbey who just shaded it, winning by a single goal to nil. This meant that Fair Oak finished in eighth place. Well done to all of our fabulous netballers who battled hard against tough opposition throughout the event!

Along with over forty other schools, our lower school tag rugby team entered the Overton Sparkling Tag Rugby Tournament today. Teams were put into pools with the top teams and the two best group runners up making it through to the quarter finals and the knock out stages. Fair Oak began with a four nil win over Oakley Otters and followed that up with a five nil win against Rucstall Primary. South View Junior were then beaten three nil before two nil win over Hatch Warren. Our final group game resulted in another victory, this time three one against Ashford Hill Primary. These results meant that Fair Oak won their group and therefore went through to the quarter finals to face Great Binfields. In a very tight match, it was unfortunately our opponents who came out on top by two tries to one. Despite this loss, our team should be proud of themselves for such a great performance throughout the day. Well done to all those who participated!
