SUPERLEAGUE STARS

Every year our netball teams have the opportunity to take to the court with stars from the Netball Superleague and at our last event in 2019, we were delighted to welcome 6 players from Wasps, 3 from Severn Stars, 2 representing Surrey Storm and one from Mavericks. 

As always, Friday started with the showpiece netball match which gave teams the opportunity to play a 5 minute game against our team of stars.  With Sam Cook lining up as goal shooter and Mikki Austin in defence, it really breaks the ice for the weekend and is great fun for all involved.

On Saturday, each team that qualifies for the cup has one Superleague star randomly allocated to their team for the day to play or coach.  Generally, it’s the teams allocated a circle player that are victorious but Tamsin Greenway managed to break the trend and coach her team to the title for the first time!

THE TOURNAMENT

TEAM

Seven players per team but with an unlimited squad size.

Competition

League seeding competition on Friday followed by second day league and knockout tournaments.

The Grounds

5 recently resurfaced and remarked tarmac courts surrounded by individual team rest areas. 

Game Time

At least 80 minutes of netball per team across 2 days.

THE RESORT

The Ultimate Tour has been held annually (with a 3 year break for COVID-related travel disruption) at the 5 star sporting-paradise of La Manga Club in Murcia, southern Spain. Built in 1972 as a single hotel and leisure complex, the club has rapidly expanded to over 2,500 private residences beautifully blended within the three championship golf courses, 28 court padel and real tennis centre and FC Cartagena training base.

You truly get a world class experience at La Manga Club and with the resort situated just 30 minutes from the nearest airport (Murcia) and only an hour from Alicante, La Manga Club is accessible from the UK in under 3 hours.
