NS PREVIEW: EMMNA National Tournament
By Eve Cobbett
Covid-19 has brought tough times for the netball world, but no group has been impacted by the pandemic more than men’s and mixed players. By the time Australia’s men’s and mixed teams can play in a National Championship again, 1000 days will have passed. At grassroots, the relative newness of men’s and mixed netball has left them at the back of the queue for facilities and game time. But, in the UK, England Men’s and Mixed Netball Association, or EMMNA for short, have been working round the clock to ensure their players have a chance to play again this summer. Out of all that hard work has come EMMNA’s inaugural National Tournament, to be played in Nottingham 7-8th August.
The National Tournament brings together over 200 players, from 16 teams, for a weekend of competition. The men will play a pool format, with the top 4 teams after the group stages progressing to play for the National Men’s Cup and the bottom 4 competing for the National Men’s Plate. Mixed will work in a round-robin format, with every team playing each other once. The two teams with the most points will then battle it out for the National Mixed Cup, whilst 3rd and 4th will play off for the National Mixed Plate. For the teams who prevail they will have the right to call themselves England’s first ever men’s and mixed national champions, a huge moment in the history of men’s and mixed netball in this country.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 6, 2021 at 1:25 pmPost count: 10722
