Student netball goes from strength to strength!

  • Reaseheath College netball team

Reaseheath’s netball team has gone from strength to strength so far this year, with students from a whole range of departments including Sport, Public Services, Equine, Animal Management, Agriculture and Food attending training and representing the college team.

Most recently the team participated in a tournament with MMU Cheshire against all three of their teams. The Reaseheath girls held their own with a convincing 10-4 win against MMU Cheshire third team playing some high quality netball.

MMU Cheshire’s second and first teams provided much more of a challenge but the Reaseheath team gained a lot from the experience and will be ready to challenge them again later in the season.

The team have some more games lined up against local sixth forms and colleges, and hoping that they will continue to improve and develop as a squad.

Sarah Ruff, College Sport Maker: “it is great to see so many students from a range of courses engaging in netball. The team have really developed over the past 2 years and it is great that I know have a squad of talented players to choose from for matches.”

Want to have a go at netball? Student netball training takes place in the sports hall every Monday 7pm and Wednesday 1pm, come along to a session or contact Sarah Ruff for more information on sarahr@reaseheath.ac.uk.

The students were more than happy in seeing me used for most of his demonstrations and just about every pressure point in my body is feeling it today!

Students Josh Baines and Thomas Adjetby gained their orange belts last week and yet again this year I’m fortunate enough to have a class of great students!

Rugby team off to a flying start!

 

Reaseheath men’s rugby team have continued their fantastic form from last season with winning their first game of the 2015-16 season with a 57-5 away  win against Holy Cross College.

This is a great result and we hope this good start will continue as the season progresses.  As always big thanks to the curriculum areas who support us with allowing their students to participate in college sport.

Jujitsu team meets world boxing champion

Last Saturday, members of the Reaseheath Jujitsu Club took part in an inter club jujitsu course in Oxford. Jujitsu clubs from Chester, Rhyl, London, as well as Oxford took part.

In the evening they held a black tie dinner at Christchurch College, which is part of Oxford University.

Students had the opportunity to attend the dinner, which hosted John Conteh the former world boxing champion, as guest speaker.  A great day and night for all concerned.

It’s been a great year so far, with up to 18 students now attend jujitsu at college each Monday and Wednesday evening and more coming along on a Thursday night for training in Chester too.
