Team From Wales Invited to First Ever New Zealand International Super Club Competition.

A brand new netball Super Club team from Wales will represent the northern hemisphere at New Zealand’s International Super Club competition in Nelson next month. 

The Super Club team from Wales, whose name title has not yet been announced, will join teams from Europe, Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania.  These teams will join the top three clubs from the ANZ Premiership for the Super Club event which will be held at the 1662-seat capacity Trafalgar Centre, July 2-7, 2017.  The Super Club event will therefore be made up of 8 teams, and will be broadcast internationally on Sky Sports 4.

Welsh Netball’s Chief Executive Sarah Jones says:

“This is very exciting for Netball here in Wales, being the only team from the northern hemisphere to be invited to participate in this brand new global club competition.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for us to expose our players to world class international netball.  Our super club athletes and management will gain invaluable experience and bring the knowledge back to Wales.

“What better way to grow the game and inspire success at home than to demonstrate how Netball is on the rise across the world, and that Wales is very much part of the changing landscape. 

“It is another exciting venture for us at Welsh Netball in what has already been a huge year in terms of pushing the boundaries of the sport here in Wales. 

“This is also an opportunity for us to strengthen our relationship with Netball New Zealand, which we began building in February when Cardiff hosted the Silver Ferns for the first time in two decades, at the Swansea University International Test Series: Wales v Silver Ferns.”

Super Club, a global Club competition for Netball – will consist of 20 matches over a period of 5 days, with one day set aside for the teams to engage with the local community.  Details on the Super Club team’s name and squad members will be announced shortly.

Netball NZ Chief Executive Jennie Wyllie said the event was brought to life after the split between New Zealand and Australia’s trans-Tasman competition, and the ambition is to allow a deeper pool of players to experience international netball.
