IT'S celebration time for two successful netball teams.

The MaltBees finished their season as undefeated champions in The League Sheffield Summer League, winning all their 14 games to gain promotion from Division Four to Division Three.

Sister team Maltby Hornets, meanwhile, won 11 of their 14 matches in the Match Night Sheffield Summer League, earning a move up to Division Five as runners-up.

Two other Maltby Netball Club teams also had solid campaigns.

Maltby Stingers finished fourth in the The League Sheffield Summer League and Maltby Wasps fifth in the Match Night Sheffield League.

Hornets' Ginny Durdy and Stingers' Rebecca Cardwell won the Player of the Season award in their respective divisions.

Maltby Hornets

Maltby Netball Club was formed in 2011 by chairwoman Leah Mullins. It began with a small group of friends who went by the name the MaltBees, with Maltby Hornets and Maltby Wasps forming in 2014 and Maltby Stingers in 2016.

All four teams train together on Thursday evenings at Maltby Leisure Centre and welcome new players.

Anyone interested should contact their Facebook page Maltby Netball Club or email maltbees@gmail.com.

The club's main sponsor from 2011 to present day is Ballycommon Services Ltd.
