The Bury St Edmunds School Sports Partnership organised the first annual Suffolk Youth Tchoukball Festival in conjunction with national champions Bury St Edmunds Tchoukball Club at the Victory Ground.

Westgate Primary School, Guildhall Feoffment Primary School, Hardwick Primary School, and Sebert Wood School all competed, with each school providing teams from Year 3 into the festival.

James Sturgeon, Bury School Sports Partnership co-ordinator, said: “This festival is the culmination of the hard work put in by all of our coaches this year.
“With some schools having only played tchoukball for a month or two, the quality shown has been fantastic.”

The festival focused on skills development, in particular shooting.

Instead of points scored, shots attempted were taken into consideration, and outcomes were determined by which team shot the most, regardless of shorts or points scored.

Hardwick Primary School came away with the overall win, just edging Westgate into second.
