Mens and Mixed netball scales up
Mens and mixed netball is on the rise across the UK after the success of the Trans Tasman Cup in Australia. England mens and mixed team are set to play off in Australia next week in a further display of the sport moving forward.
In Scotland, Highland Fever, are competing with the top domestic clubs as an invitational entry to the inaugural National League.
Sunday saw the first run out against Edinburgh side Dunedin at Perth UHI which was neck and neck right up until the final whistle tying the final score 42-42.
Team captain Hendrick Lessing said after the match
“It was a very good game, the competition from Dunedin was very physical which we enjoyed. It was nice to come back from behind, the boys showed a lot of character on court.”
“We kept our cool and worked as a unit, we have done this before in the past and we are happy that we were able to push Dunedin for the full 60 minutes.”
As the first men’s club in Scotland, Fever are leading the way for more men’s and mixed clubs to develop up and down the country.
Sky have also confirmed that the England Thorns game will be shown this weekend
