After a very useful explanation of the new rules, the Pumas took to the courts, looking lovely and smart in their new dresses.
Despite the long summer break, our Pumas played very well together, beating teams they've never beaten before. At the end of the day the Pumas finished a very respectable 7th out of 12 teams (with Sabres 4th, Panthers 5th & the Wildcats 10th).
Today was a good opportunity for the girls to try out new positions, giving us more versatility as a team. It was particularly gratifying that another team commented on the excellent conduct of the Pumas, saying that they are "a lovely young team, who play well together & really support each other". Good work girls!
A big welcome back to Katie. Welcome too to Ellie & Freya, who will be regular members of our Wednesday Pumas team.
Mia deserves a special well done today, as she managed to play for us all day despite having stayed up all night at a guiding event. Sleep well Mia!
Another very special mention goes to Viqui Barker who was awarded the prize for being the player with the most POMs (Player Of the Match) for the Sunday league last season. Well done Viqui.
All in all the Pumas got off to a great start to the season today, showing good teamwork and excellent sportsmanlike conduct. Fantastic work today Pumas! We're very proud of you and we're looking forward to the Wed league!
