Cairns netball test to be rescheduled
THE four-match Constellation Cup series between the Origin Australian Diamonds and the New Zealand Silver Ferns will be rescheduled.
The Diamonds were set to host the Silver Ferns in Brisbane and Cairns this October, before travelling to Auckland and Wellington for the final matches.
The series will be rescheduled due to the closure of the trans-Tasman travel bubble and the challenges around international travel.
Netball Australia is working closely with Netball New Zealand to determine dates and locations for the series.
“There is a joint commitment between Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand to ensure the Constellation Cup goes ahead,” said Netball Australia CEO Kelly Ryan.
“We want our netball fans to be able to watch this sport’s greatest rivalry and this series forms a crucial part of the Diamonds preparation for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.”
The Diamonds are also scheduled to host England Netball’s Vitality Roses next month, with dates and locations also being worked through with Netball England.
