Wycombe Wizards, came second at the U12 National Junior Club League Championships held at the NBC on June 11. The players showed the best team spirit in the hall to beat Chew Valley and only narrowly lost to Swifts in the final. It was a really tense final with a good crowd and atmosphere. Abigail Holden, from Wycombe EPT, was the team mentor for the day and was really impressed with how the players performed and supported each other.
Our U14 team also competed on the Sunday and had a great day, coming in 5th place.
