They will compete in this tournament in January 2017.

In the Open Competition, the Netball 2nd team (manager Barbara Mellish) and the Netball 3rd team (manager: Sam Jones) won all of their games until they came up against each other. After an extremely close and competitive match, the 2nd team came out on top, but only just, winning 9 – 8. The 2nd team went on to win the competition, with the 3rd team coming a close 2nd only losing to the other PSC team on the day.
