Thunder face ‘world’s best’


Manchester Thunder will play netball’s greatest in Manchester ahead of the World Cup

Manchester Thunder will host Jamaica, England’s Vitality Roses and the Australian Diamonds in early July as the international sides prepare for the Netball World Cup.

With the tournament commencing on July 12, the reigning Vitality Netball Superleague champions will play the international sides across two venues – the Platt Lane Sports Complex and Belle Vue.

The opportunity to match-up against the top three sides in the world rankings is one that thrills Thunder’s director of netball Karen Greig.
“Just weeks after winning the Superleague title, all of us at Thunder are relishing the prospect of taking on the best players from the countries who want to lift the title in Liverpool on July 21,” said Greig, who is a former international player herself.

“Whether you’re a netball fan or have never seen a game, this is your chance to see what netball is all about. Buy a ticket, be there and be part of it.”
