Netball Scotland Announces Test Series with Barbados

Netball Scotland has announced that they will be hosting their first international test series since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

The two match test series from the 2nd-3rd December will see the Scottish Thistles host Barbados.

Netball Scotland and Strathclyde Sirens CEO, Claire Nelson, is excited for the return of netball to Scotland, she said:

“Being an indoor, team, contact sport we were heavily impacted by the effects of Covid, and our national team has lost precious training and playing time in the build-up to next year’s Commonwealth Games.

“This event marks a critical milestone in our recovery and rebuild, both on and off the court.

“But more importantly, it represents an opportunity to showcase women’s sport and athletes at a time when the country really needs to shine a greater light on them.”

Tickets for the event at the at the Glasgow Emirates Arena go on sale on Friday 29th October and can be purchased here.
