“They put so much effort and dedication in. We are immensely proud of the team and entire squad who have played their part in supporting those that played.”

Fifteen Thanet teams competed in the tournament. St Georges took the runner up spot.

Thanet District Netball League chairman Linda Bushell said: “We are so proud to run this spectacular annual event that we have been running for many years.
