|Netball World News. Welcome to your newsletter from the International Netball Federation. After so little international netball action this year, it’s fantastic to see elite netballers from many corners of the globe getting back on court. Not only are they back, but they’re eager to push themselves further, with stiff competition from men’s sides and the next generation of international stars. |
The Silver Ferns completed a Taini Jamison Trophy clean sweep after posting a 62-47 win over the England Roses in the Cadbury Netball Series finale, in front of a sold-out crowd on Sunday.
Following 13 and seven goal wins in the first two Tests, the Silver Ferns saved their best until last in the 100th Test between the pair. The Silver Ferns’ endurance and composure was evident, after a hard-fought warm-up series against the national mens’, A and U21 teams.
The top netballers in Fiji have been going head-to-head in recent weeks, as four elite teams. The Digicel & Punjas 2020 Reset Netball Championship is an opportunity for spectators to enjoy highly-competitive netball, while the players vie for positions in the national squad. Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea’s national squad have been working on the physical side of their game, with training matches against the mixed team from Motukoita West Netball Association. Skilled netball was displayed by both teams, and the national squad were pushed for four quarters. Motukoita West is currently the only association in the country with a mixed competition, but with the profile of men’s netball rising globally, we may well see more in future! Cayman Islands
Congratulations to All Stars, who have secured the title in the Cayman Islands Netball Grand Final! Their victory over Rising Stars saw a number of national players take the court, and it was made even sweeter as their second team were also champions in the Plate competition.
