Netball Is Back

Netball is Back!
We hope you are as excited as we are, Saturday the 7th of August is our test match: Netball NI Warriors V Netball Ireland.
Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will go head-to-head in an International Test Match next weekend – join us at Lisburn Racquets and support our Warriors as the two neighbouring nations come together to celebrate the return of our great sport.
This is the first time our Northern Ireland Warriors have played an International Match on their home soil since September 2019!
“It has been almost two years since we have played an international test. In this time, the girls have been doing a lot of individual training and more recently collectively. We train to play, and this test is so important to assess our standards, plan our next few months and evaluate players under test settings. We are hopeful that this will springboard the next few months training with further tests in August and October. We are fortunate that Republic of Ireland are also keen to get their athletes back on court and renew our rivalry!”
- Head Coach, Elaine Rice
It will give Head Coach Elaine Rice a valuable opportunity to see her Warriors Squad in action before they travel to Scotland to play friendlies v Scotland and Wales at the end of the Summer.
