We enter teams into Junior Regional and National tournaments often joining with other teams in the South East. We were very proud to have 20 of our junior members representing SE Teams in the Junior Nationals this year.

We were especially pleased that one of the Under 16 teams included 6 of our members who are students at Heathlands School for the Deaf. We are working very closely with Heathlands School to increase participation in our sport for young people who are deaf.

There are currently 6 of our junior members training hard with the GB Under 19’s and hoping for selection for a place in the squads going forward.

3 of our junior players represented GB in France last year.

Going forward we are organising more friendly games with local clubs to give our younger players more competition experience.
