Honiton Netball Club were playing in the Exeter and District Summer Tournament on Saturday, writes Louise Hastie.
Teams were entered into U11,U12, U14 and U16 age groups, playing against clubs from Exeter, Axminster, Teighmouth and Kingsbridge.
The U14 was a particularly competitive group with 12 teams entered.
Honiton had two teams, one of whom, Blaze, was made up of girls that will be playing in a Sidmouth kit in September when the new Sidmouth Netball Club starts officially.
Blaze had five games in the pool and won four of them just dropping a point to the West Exe first team.

This was enough to put them through to the semi-finals where unfortunately they lost out to Exeter One.
They didn’t let this get them down though, and, after a hard fought third and fourth place play-off match against local rivals Axminster Velocity, came out on top to secure third place in the tournament.
