England Netball are delighted to announce a new partnership with Perform Better, which sees the leading suppliers of innovative sports performance equipment support the Vitality Roses until at least December 2023.
Perform Better, founded 15 years ago with the aim to be a one-stop-shop for sports science and strength equipment for the elite sports market, will partner with England Netball in modifying the sports medicine areas within all England camps, all England international competitions and key Vitality Netball Superleague fixtures for 2022 including the Season Opener and Grand Final events.
During the Vitality Netball Superleague 2021 season Perform Better were the official supplier of strength and fitness equipment, with pop-up gyms and recovery equipment provided for the two central venues used in Wakefield and London.

For many years now they have provided sport science and strength and conditioning equipment to elite athletes both in the UK and internationally. As leaders in their field, they have a true understanding of what is required to train and perform at the highest level, and we are looking forward to working together to help give our athletes the very best support in preparation for both the training environment and on court.”
Mark Gladwin, Director and Co-Founder of Perform Better added: “We are immensely proud to be working with the Vitality Roses squad as they journey to next year’s Commonwealth Games and beyond. We hope by providing leading sports science testing and strength and conditioning equipment to all camps and competitions that we can play a part in helping all athletes and teams achieve their goals. We are incredibly grateful for the support that all at England Netball have given us at Perform Better and look forward to our partnership coming to life during such an exciting time for the sport and the organisation.”
