Green light for netball return on August 1

IT’S game on for the NSW Swifts and Giants, with the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season beginning on Saturday, August 1.

While the league is committed to completing a full 60-match season, the fixture for the season is still being finalised.
The start date means teams have been given the green light to begin group training, within the government guidelines in each State, from this week.
Suncorp Super Netball CEO Chris Symington says the season start represents a significant step forward on the road to getting back on court. 
“We’re thrilled to have a date to work towards and fans can start to get excited,” he said. 
“Our guiding principles throughout this process have never changed, those being the health and wellbeing of the community alongside the financial viability of our sport.
“I would like to thank our dedicated members and fans who have stuck by their teams and the sport through an incredibly challenging period.” 
Suncorp Super Netball will continue to provide updates as further detail in relation to the season format is confirmed.
