International Quad Series announced

15 days ago

The Origin Australian Diamonds will take on their biggest rivals in January's Netball Quad Series.


The Diamonds will come up against top-five netball nations Netball England's Vitality Roses, the New Zealand Silver Ferns and Netball South Africa's SPAR Proteas at London's Copper Box Arena from 16-20 January, 2022.

The four sides will go head-to-head once, with a third and fourth place game and a final to decide the winner of the Netball Quad Series trophy.

The Netball Quad Series will be broadcast live and ad-break free during live play on Fox Sports, available through Foxtel and Kayo Freebies, the new home of netball.

The inaugural Netball Quad Series was played in 2016 and since then, the Diamonds have won five of the six titles.

"I am incredibly excited to see how we transfer what we worked on during the recent performance camp to the international stage," said Origin Australian Diamonds head coach Stacey Marinkovich.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to test ourselves as we lead into an important year with the Commonwealth Games.

"It's also great for our fans to see international netball back on the court, with the series being broadcast live and ad-break free on Fox Sports."

With funding support from Commonwealth Games Australia, the Diamonds will take an extended squad of 15 athletes to London.

"We're very grateful to have received support from Commonwealth Games Australia to take a full squad of 15 athletes to the Netball Quad Series," Marinkovich said.

"This will give our athletes exposure to international travel, training and competition ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, as well as the opportunity to adapt to international styles, tactics, and the on and off court environments.

"Tour squad selection for the Netball Quad Series will be announced in the coming days, off the back of a strong squad camp in October."
