NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 7/06/2017

The top three teams from the inaugural national netball premiership will go on to play in a new international club competition to be staged in Nelson.

Super Club, announced by Netball New Zealand on Wednesday, will comprise eight teams from across Europe, Africa, the Americas and Oceania.

The five other sides have yet to be named.

The tournament will run from July 2 to 7 and all 20 matches will be broadcast live on Sky TV.

NZN chief executive Jennie Wyllie says the concept has been a long time in the planning.

"Netball New Zealand has a five-year vision for Super Club," she said.

"We believe the opportunities this will create will provide players with the international competition they cannot otherwise find."
