The International Netball Federation (INF) has released the latest World Rankings. These rankings reflect the games played up to 29th November 2020 and include the SPAR challenge Series played between South Africa and Malawi. The test series saw three games take place between 26th – 29th November with South Africa becoming the SPAR Challenge Netball Series Champions 2020.
The inclusion of this one test series sees no change to the INF World Rankings table with Australia retaining 1st place, New Zealand in 2nd, England remain in 3rd place while Jamaica and South Africa follow in 4th and 5th place.
This year, considering the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation and postponements of matches, the INF Board made the decision to reduce the number of matches required over the ranking period to obtain a ranking from eight to six. This enables countries who have not been able to play eight matches since July 2017 due to the suspension of international play to maintain their ranking.
The INF is continuing to support and assist our Member nations in their return to play and we look forward to two test series planned for January 2021 when England take on Jamaica and South Africa will play Uganda.
