Having been catapulted into the spotlight throughout 2018, Netball has enjoyed a massive boost in popularity thanks to the sensational Commonwealth Gold Medal win against the Aussies, in Australia! Our national team, England Vitality Roses were also double winners at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards 2018 as the squad picked up both ‘Team of the Year’ and ‘Best Sporting Moment’ accolades.

England Vitality Rose’s Ama Agbeze said: “I keep on saying that Netball is the ultimate team sport because you need all of your team to be able to score and to win games.

“We hope there will be many more medals to come and just like football was coming home, we hope that Netball came home (in 2018) and will for many more years to come.”
