The Fast5 Netball World Series will be held at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena on October 29-30. We take a look at the top five reasons why you should get your mates together and book your tickets via Ticketek.
1. It’s netball like you’ve never seen it
So you think this is a just your regular international netball series? Think again. Different rules bring a faster game of netball, and it’s one you should be getting excited about. There are shorter games, five players a side, rolling substitutions, a two and three-point scoring arc, and Power Play quarters, doubling every score shot. It’s a game of speed and an even more exciting spectacle! Will you be able to keep up?
2. It’s more than just the on-court action
Picture this, a sanctuary you can go chill out and enjoy the action away from the court. No need to imagine, FanFest will fulfil all of your off-court needs at the Fast5 Netball World Series! You’ll be able to kick back with a drink, catch up with your mates or make new ones mingling by the bar. And of course enjoy the music and entertainment that will have FanFest pumping across the weekend.
3. World class athletes on the centre stage
We’re talking nine games of netball a day between the top six ranked netball nations in the world – Australia, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, Malawi and South Africa. All teams will feature on each day of competition with the Grand Final to decide who will be our Fast5 Netball World Series Champions! The Fast5 Ferns have taken out the series five out of six occasions, with the England Fives the only other series’ winners. Will we have a new winner when the Fast5 Netball World Series comes to Melbourne?
4. Get out of your seat fun
Come on and bust a move!? Hisense Arena will be your number one entertainment destination, with not only on-court action to entertain you, but the crazy costumes and dance moves will make you the stars of the show! Dancing, drinking and netball, what’s a better combination than that?
5. There’s so much to enjoy about Melbourne
It’s the best time to be in Melbourne with so many exciting things to explore and enjoy, why not make a trip of it? Shopping, Spring Racing Carnival, laneway coffee shops, mouth-watering food, there’s nowhere else you would rather be in October than experiencing the rich Melbourne culture. And of course the Centurions Stage Show with special guest Irene van Dyk on the Friday night, the Fast5 Netball World Series is the ultimate place to start or finish your weekend away.
