Court 1 was the Beach Babes against Michelle’s Minkes. Edie Thurtell dom­i­nated in the shoot­ing cir­cle to score for the Beach Babes to win. Te­shara Vi­ola for the Minkes showed ex­cep­tional court skills in both at­tack and de­fence to be awarded best on court fro the Minkes. The Young Stars played Mixed Pink, the Mixed Pink team is made up of team play­ers who are sit­ting off due to many teams hav­ing more than seven play­ers, so all play­ers are now on court play­ing. The Young Stars had a bat­tle on their hands against the Pink team who gelled to­gether well from the start and con­tin­ued to at­tack and de­fend ex­tremely well. Best play­ers Michela Nis­bett, Ge­or­gia Crim­mins, Jor­dan Hunt and Ella Cairns. The Di­a­monds played the Pythons on court 1 for the 12- and- un­der com­pe­ti­tion.
