Over 150 South Yorkshire schoolchildren got a taste of netball action, with a major tournament at the Barnsley Metrodome.

Team Activ organised the event, as part of a nationwide Sport England School Games competition and the winning schools will now go through to a semi-final at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, where they will compete for the chance to play in the national finals.
