FENLANDER: Payne and Ramnoth Schools victorious in latest Wis Gets Physical tournament

PAYNE and Ramnoth Primary Schools came out on top in two closely contested finals in the Wis Gets Physical basketball tournaments last week.

Payne beat Elm Road 2-0 in the final of the Years 5-6 tournament and Ramnoth overcame Leverington 4-2 in the final for Years 3-4.

Altogether 240 children from 12 schools competed in the two tournaments, staged by Fenland District Council at the Hudson leisure centre in Wisbech.

The other schools that took part were Wisbech St Mary, Friday Bridge, Elm, Peckover, Gorefield, Murrow, Kinderley and St Peter’s.

Councillor Ralph Butcher, FDC’s portfolio holder for health and well-being, watched some of the matches. He said: “The standard was very high and everyone should be really pleased with what they’ve achieved in a maximum of 10 weeks’ coaching.
