This is from Team Bath Netball: Team Bath will begin the defence of their Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship title against Surrey Storm in the opening match on Friday, 16 June at the Copper Box Arena, London with tickets available to buy now.
The tournament begins with a double-elimination group stage, with fixtures drawn earlier today live on the Sky Sports YouTube channel with Di Stewart, Tamsin Greenway, Team Bath’s Betsy Creak, and Matchroom Multi Sport Managing Director Emily Frazer.
Manchester Thunder will take on Strathclyde Sirens with both sides bolstered with other leading Netball Super League players in for one match only. 2021 finalists Saracens Mavericks will battle it out against Severn Stars whilst this year’s NSL finalists London Pulse will meet Leeds Rhinos on home soil.
Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship is one of the most exciting formats in the game and features just five players-a-side, shortened match times, multiple point shots, unlimited roll on-roll-off substitutions, and an exciting double point power play: setting the stage for guaranteed entertainment with the golden buzzer.
The format sees teams compete in the double-elimination group stage before the semi-finals and final with Team Bath the defending champions beating Saracens Mavericks in the 2021 final 23-17.
Defending champions Team Bath will lead the charge come Friday, 16 June with the likes of current Netball Super League leaders Surrey Storm, 2022 NSL champions Manchester Thunder, Leeds Rhinos, London Pulse, Severn Stars, Strathclyde Sirens, and two-time finalists the Saracens Mavericks.
The eight sides will battle it out for a slice of the £100,000 prize fund over five action-packed hours beginning with the first centre pass at 5:30 pm with the final set to conclude at 10:30 pm. Action will be live on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland as well as live on DAZN in Spain, USA, and Italy, Viaplay in Scandinavia, Baltics, Netherlands and Poland.
