February Sports Highlights - Celebrating Achievements and Community Unity

Updated: Mar 1

Student Sports

This month saw the first Nottsball Netball tournament, featuring five teams representing JSoCs from Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol. Nearly 100 attendees enjoyed the spirited competition, which consisted of 10 matches and saw Birmingham JSoC emerge victorious after an undefeated run. Student Sport is a joint project between JAthlete, UJS, Maccabi GB.


School Sports

We ran our largest ever Netball Tournament, welcoming 20 teams from 14 different Primary schools. Congratulations to Wolfson Hillel A for winning the tournament. Additionally, the Year 5/6 Netball tournament also took place in February, with 7 schools taking part. The tournaments this month have allowed 260 pupils to take part in competitive Jewish sport.

Alongside our tournaments we have been running PE lessons in three schools, these lessons follow the national curriculum and have been created for each school. We reach 650 pupils per week in 19 lessons. The focus for this half term has been on movement and dance and culminates in the students performing a routine in their lesson.


Grassroots and Community Sports

Our Grassroots sport clubs and leagues are continuing to take place on a monthly and weekly basis. Our 5 affiliated football leagues see over 1,000 players ranging from U8 to Over 45’s play in weekly competitive matches. This is alongside the Maccabi GB Walking Football League which held it’s latest fixture on Sunday 11th February with Green Machine defeating Inter Red Wine 3-2.

The Maccabi GB Junior Netball League returned on Sunday 25th February with a set of fixtures after a short break.  The league is entering it’s final stages with two rounds of fixtures remaining.
