THE Ringwood Brewery sponsored netball team won the UK Beach Netball tournament in fantastic conditions at Boscombe Beach on Saturday, writes STEVE BENSON.

The competition attracted teams from across the UK and the Ringwood Brewery team, that competes in the New Forest Netball League, won all seven of their group games to qualify for the semi-final.

This brought them up against the team from South London that beat them in the last final, but this year the Ringwood Brewery team won 17-10.

In the final they went 3-1 down, but fought back to 3-3 at half time and then dominated the second half to win 8-3.

The team's captain Charlotte Benson said after the tournament: "It was a great day and winning the tournament was a fantastic achievement, particularly after losing the last final."

She added: 'I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Ringwood Brewery for their sponsorship both for this tournament and in the New Forest Netball League."
