BOYS have been banned from taking part in this year’s netball competition at the Urdd National Sports Festival in Aberystwyth.
Organisers said the move was aimed at getting more girls to take part and said that boys are sometimes at an advantage in netball because they are physically stronger.
Teacher Lisa Jones said the school still planned to enter a team, but that it would now include girls from younger years.
Boys and girls will be allowed to compete together in football, as well as most other sports.
Lots of primary schools are upset at hearing the news, though, since many had been training for some time.
We want to know what you think. Should the boys have been banned from playing netball with the girls?
