Draw released for Fast5 Netball World Series

Fast5The draw for this year’s Fast5 Netball World Series in New Zealand has released with the competition being played under a slightly new format in 2014.

The tournament will be played at Auckland’s Vector Arena from 8-9 November with the Australian Fast5 Flyers to play the opening match against the Jamaican Sunshine Girls as they look to go one step better than last year’s runner up finish to the New Zealand FAST5 Ferns.

There are no semi-finals this year with the ladder positions being decided on head-to-head results over the two days of the tournament.

Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, South Africa, England and Malawi will play at least six matches across the two days of competition.
