The 2023 Netball Quad Series will be played in Cape Town, South Africa from the 21st to the 25th of January 2023 as confirmed by the federation (Netball South Africa). This will only be the third time South Africa hosts this event, and Cape Town will be doing so for the first time.
As the rest of the world looks to descend to South African shores ahead of the 2023 Netball World Cup, the SPAR Proteas will also be looking at using this event as a perfect opportunity to get some game time ahead of the global showpiece.
“The timing of the Quad Series couldn’t be more perfect than this because we are now a few months away from the World Cup. Hosting the Quad Series will give us an indication of where we are in terms of our state of readiness – I think we will get an opportunity to gauge ourselves and figure out where we need to improve”, said Netball South Africa President Cecilia Molokwane.
Confirmed countries that will be competing at the 2023 Netball Quad Series are South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and England. All nations are expected to arrive in South Africa between the 16th and 17th of January respectively.
Tickets for the Quad Series are expected to go on sale from the 15th of December 2022 and will range from R250 – R500 and R100 for school-going children. Tickets are available at Ticketpro outlets nationwide.
The SPAR Proteas have just completed their training camp in Stellenbosch. Players and the management team are taking a well-deserved break and will meet again on the 9th of January 2023 to get ready and prepare for the Quad Series.
Molokwane concluded by saying that “the team has worked hard throughout the year and had to deal with a lot. Overall, we are happy with what they have been able to achieve, we believe that this break is what the team needs, and they will come back in January understanding what is at stake – I believe that they will push hard to remind the world that they are here to compete.”
The SPAR Proteas 15-player squad will be announced in January when the team meets after the festive break. All matches will be played at Cape Town’s International Convention Centre and will also be broadcast on SuperSport Variety 4 in South Africa and Variety 1 for the rest of the continent.
