Our final Primary tournament of the season took place on Saturday 18th May with 9 teams participating in the tournament. It was a great afternoon of netball with all the teams showing improvement in their skills and team work which they have been working so hard on throughout the year. It was amazing to see all the players showing fantastic sportsmanship on and off the court and are a credit to their schools and coaches.

With numerous close games throughout the tournament , it came down to the last fixtures of the day to decide the overall winner. With Stronsay Limpets and Orphir Orcas equal on points, both teams played an incredible game of netball. Stronsay took the lead with their accurate passing throughout the court but with a few vital turnovers, Orphir made a come back. With some nailbitting moments and a game that could go either way, Orphir managed to score in the last few seconds to make the final score 5-4 to Orphir. Well done to Orphir Orcas for winning the Peedie Schools Tournament 2024.

Avril Cromarty who donated the shield for the Peedie Schools Tournament was unable to make it so her granddaughter presented the shield, certificates and medals to the winners on her behalf. A massive thank you to all the players, coaches and umpires for their commitment towards our primary netball events this season. A well deserved break is needed for all involved and we look forward to seeing everyone back after the summer break.


On Sunday 12th May, 18 teams from 11 schools took part in our P4/5 Netball Tournament which was kindly sponsored by Sheila Fleet Jewellery. For many of the kids, this was their first competitive netball tournament and the atmosphere in the arena was buzzing with excitement. Teams were split into two groups and played each team in their group once. The top two teams from each group would then progress on to the semi-finals.

Firth Vikings and Orphir Orcas played in one semi-final which was a very exciting game that could have gone either way. Goal for goal throughout the game however Firth managed to score in the dying seconds to secure their place in the final. For the other semi-final, Stromness Slushies and Papdale Twisters competed against each another. Stromness started off strong, linking well and demonstrating solid shooting skills. Papdale started to find their stride in the second half but Stromness had created a comfortable lead and took the win to move to the final. The final between Firth Vikings and Stromness Slushies had both teams playing great netball. With Stromness' accurate passing and strong defensive pressure, they managed to out run Firth to win the final. The second year in a row that the shield is heading back to Stromness. Well done Stromness Slushies.

Mairi Fleet from Sheila Fleet kindly came along to present the trophy and certificates to the winner and runner ups.

On Saturday 11th May, 21 teams took part in the Primary Knockout that was kindly sponsored by D & H Law. With several closely contested games during the knockout stage, it made for an exciting day of netball.


The group stages saw teams seeded then placed into the A or B knockout. The A knockout had fantastic games with many players putting the skills they have learnt over the season into their game play. The final was contested by Dounby Dazzlers and Stronsay Limpets and with slick movements from both teams, it was Dounby Dazzlers that came out winners in the end. Well done to Dounby Dazzlers.

The B knockout had many younger players contending well under pressure. The final was contested by the Hup Stars and St Andrews Dolphins. St Andrews got off to a strong start with their controlled play and accurate shooting. The Hup Stars team fought on and kept going but in the end, St Andrews Dolphins came away with the win. Well done St Andrews Dolphins.

Special thanks to Irene from D & H Law, who came along to present the finalists with their trophies and certificates.
