On 4th June 2019, Mogers Drewett hosted its second annual charity netball tournament, raising £2,000 for local charity Dorothy House Hospice.
Supported by Team Bath Netball, hosted in the Sports Training Village at the University of Bath, eight teams from local businesses took part alongside one pro player from Team Bath who was allocated to each team. Superleague players included Amanda Varey, Imogen Allison, Mia Ritchie, Superleague head coach Anna Stembridge and others.
Following a fast-paced tournament with friendly banter, the trophy was deservedly secured by St.John’s Foundation, who triumphed in a thrilling final with Richardson Swift. Wiltshire Radio DJ, Ben Williams was also in attendance to get the crowd going, culminating with a well earned BBQ to end the event.
Sean McDonough. Partner at Mogers Drewett said:
“A huge thank you to the players for their effort and the spectators for their support. We are hugely grateful to everyone who contributed to the £2,000 raised for Dorothy House Hospice, a local charity that is close to our hearts.”
“It was great to see the standard of play improve on last year, where some teams had even managed to get in some practice! The Team Bath Netball players were excellent coaches and brought plenty of fun and competitiveness to the event.”
The eight competing teams included Search Star, Richardson Swift, Milsted Langdon, Barclays, St.John’s Foundation, Carter Jonas, defending champions Interaction and Mogers Dewett’s own team Mogers’ Magic.
