What’s on this month – February 2020
The start of 2020 did not disappoint in the world of international netball as the Vitality Nations Cup kicked off the New Year with four days of thrilling world-class netball in the UK. The gold medal match between the Silver Ferns and Sunshine Girls was an intense game with the half time score equal at 30-30. However, after a fiery second half, New Zealand proved why they are the World Champions, claiming the win to be crowned Vitality Netball Nations Champions 2020. England took the bronze and South Africa finished fourth.
February is set to be another busy month with exciting competitions and the launch of our #RoadToFiji campaign.
