Ladies Indoor Netball squad take World Cup Gold!

We are extremely proud of our association with the England Indoor Netball Team! We were therefore over the moon to hear that on their 4th consecutive tour with us the Ladies England squad took GOLD in the 7s championship at the Indoor Netball World Cup!!

A number of squads made the long trip over to New Zealand, a mixed team, an U21s team and the Ladies team. They arrived on the 12th August where they embarked on a week of acclimatising and training before the competition began.

The World Championships began on the 21st August with the Super 6s competition. After a very competitive first day it was clear that the host national were the team to beat! A highlight was the Ladies team beating Australia for the first time ever!

Following another competitive day of matches the mixed team were unfortunately knocked out in the quarter final stage by South Africa. The U21s were able to overcome South Africa in the Quarter Finals where they faced a strong Australian side. The game was tied at the end of the match which resulted in extra time. The teams were so evenly matched that this also ended in a draw! A penalty shoot out was the only way to separate the two teams and unfortunately Australia just edged them out.

After another hard fought game England lost narrowly 48-44. The hosts New Zealand took Gold across the board in the Men’s, Ladies, Mixed and U21 categories.

The teams had a day to recover and train before the 7s campaign started on the 24th August. All three squads were looking to build on their achievements in the Super 6s.
