Students from Weston College enjoyed a tour to Barcelona, training with national coaches.

Weston College athletes travelled to Barcelona for their annual netball tour, where they trained with national coaches and worked hard as a team to beat their opposition.

This was the first tour the college has provided for their sport academy girls, so everyone was privileged to be there.

After arriving in Barcelona, the girls took a trip to Port Aventura, the biggest theme park resort in the south of Europe.

The next two days consisted of high standard netball coaching and a tournament. Coaches included Tallisa Haynes, who coached Surrey Storm to Super League victory last year.
