England Netball

“The Commonwealth Games is a pinnacle event in the netball calendar; with all the top teams in the world in attendance.” – Ama Agbeze, England captain

England have three games left at the Commonwealth Games and every one of them matters hugely. Now that we are at the business end of the competition, here is your guide to how it works and how to follow your favourite players. Our next game is against New Zealand to determine the pool winners. This game starts just after midnight on Tuesday night, into the early hours of Wednesday.


The Commonwealth Games netball competition is being held between April 5th and 12th.

The draw took place back in August 2017 with the top 12 teams in the world split into two pools for the preliminary rounds.

The top six teams in the world were split between the two pools with the remaining six drawn at random.

Pool A: Australia (defending champions), Jamaica, South Africa, Barbados, Fiji and Northern Ireland

Pool B: New Zealand, England, Malawi, Wales, Scotland and Uganda

Each team plays every other team within their pool during the preliminary round matches, receiving two points for a win, one point for a draw and zero for a loss.

The top two teams in each pool qualify for the semi-finals.

The bottom four teams will commence play-offs for placing games.

England booked their place in the semi-finals after winning all five of their Pool B fixtures.

They now face Jamaica in the semi-final at 6am (UK time) on Saturday morning. The Gold Coast is 9 hours ahead of British Summer Time.

If England win, they’ll face either Australia or New Zealand in the final at 4am (UK time) on Sunday morning. If Jamaica win, England will compete in the bronze medal match at 2am (UK time) on Sunday morning.

Match duration is 60 minutes, consisting of four quarters of 15 minutes. The breaks between the 1st and 2nd quarters and the 3rd and 4th quarters are four minutes. The half time interval (between 2nd and 3rd quarter) is 12 minutes.

All preliminary round matches may result in a draw.

All classification and finals matches must be played to a result.
