Handball Tournament

Both the boys and girls U15 Handball teams were selected to represent Dartford and Gravesham at the Kent School Games. 

Both teams played extremely well in a very tough competition and managed to reach the later stages of each competition. 


The event was an excellent opportunity for the students to play with some of the best school Handball teams in the county at an excellent venue. Every game was competitive and Orchards recorded several victories' however did not make the final.
