JOHN CAIRNDYER-SQUIRESTON CUP – Newcombe ball

This Friday, Thunder and The Swans had a thrilling game of newcombe ball. Thunder took the win by 2 games. Each of the games contained 21 points. The aim of the game is to throw the ball over a high net and try to make the other team fumble or drop the ball. When the ball comes over to your side your team needs to catch the ball before it drops on the ground. Every time the opposition drops the ball your team gains a point. For this game best and fairest went to Monique and Jake.
