Court Fields climbing news

Court Fields finished aNOEL3404s runners up in the 2017 SW Schools climbing competition.

The event was quieter than usual with many schools taking advantage of the good weather and out on Ten Tors training. The students climbed very well, eventually losing to a much older team from Trinity School. Katie Acton and Joe Walmsley were the highest placed finishers in their respective categories. Congratulations to all who took part.

Court Fields climbing success

The Court Fields climbing squad came away with second place in the South West Schools Championships this year. The standard of competition was much higher than previous years and our team contained three young novice climbers who showed a great deal of persistence over a long tiring day.

Special congratulations to Joe Walmsley who flashed every single route as well as winning his category in the British Youth Series contest on the previous day which means that he will be travelling to Edinburgh for the National Finals at the end of April.

Thanks as usual to the Quay for hosting the event.
