First full day netball

We made our way this morning via the MRT to the indoor netball stadium ready for our first full day of netball. We, of course, were there for the first game of the day along with a handful of other hardy supporters.
But by the time the Australian game was due to start the stadium had filled, and when the NZ game started the stands were packed with crazy fans. A few of them are here…

All the games were great in their own way, but it was the NZ game that we were all really waiting for. When the NZ team walked into the stadium the crowd was amazingly loud. A great feeling to be part of it all. We watched the girls warm up with nervous eagerness, I am not sure who were more eager or nervous, them or us!

Last minute team talk.

A number of combinations were tried and tested on the court, and altho we came away with a comprehensive win, there is still room for improvement.

We left the stadium before the end of the last game of the day so that we could attend dinner with the rest of our tour group at the Lau Pa Sat hawker market. After a lovely dinner we headed back to our hotel to sort out ourselves ready for another full day of netball followed by a night safari at the zoo.
