Netball

Have you been caught up in the recent excitement of the Commonwealth Games on The Gold Coast? The England netball team, the Roses, were victorious and took the gold medal home after nailbiting semis and a breathtaking final against Australia who have been unbeaten for what seems like forever!! The Roses have been fighting for the top position in recent years but have never gained it until now. Many people have been newly excited by netball as a spectator sport and in recent years England netball has launched a nationwide back to netball scheme that has been hugely successful in boosting local team numbers and encouraging ladies and girls to play for fun and fitness.

Sharp and Blunt – The Ladies’ Side

Despite the strong Morris tradition in Adderbury, dating back to the early 20th century, it was not until April 2010 that our ladies’ side was formed. Following a conversation between Tay Yardley Barnes and Keith Norton at the Day of Dance, Tay gathered together 12 would-be dancers and two musicians within a few hours and Sharp and Blunt was born. The name was chosen in honour of Cecil Sharp and Janet Blunt, both avid collectors of Morris and folk dances and songs during the first half of the 20th century. Coincidentally, Janet lived at Le Halle Place, where our squire, Laura Walker, lives now.
