Here’s a look ahead to Premier League 1, 2 and 3.

Premier League 1

Ten-time winners and reigning champions Oldham get their new season underway at home to Charnwood, who enjoyed a successful first stint in the first division, finishing third. This season sees Oldham captain Kerry Almond transition from the court to the coaching staff taking an assistant coaching role meanwhile Jade Clarke makes her return.

Head Coach Debbie Hallas said: “It’s about building consistency and introducing younger players into the squad to gain experience as we rely on them toward the end of the season. Although we will lose Kerry, I’m delighted that Jade Clarke is joining us for the season, she will add so much on and off the court, particularly in the development of the younger players.”

Last year’s runners-up Academy, who finished just four points behind Oldham, welcome newly promoted The Downs to Kingston Upon Thames for their season opener.

Meanwhile, 2023 Premier League two champions Grangetown are back in the top division after earning promotion at the first attempt. They get their 2024 campaign underway with a home tie against YWCA Bury.

Premier League 2

Having missed out on promotion for the last two seasons, Cumberland will be pushing again to make it to the top division as they host Linden in their opening game.

Coming down from Premier League 1, Leeds Athletic head to newly promoted Norfolk United who have risen to the second tier after 10 years in the third division. Meanwhile, Hucclecote travel to Worcester Reds and Reds Coach, Sam Rudd, is looking forward to getting the new campaign underway.

“We have a strong group of players with a lot of talent and we believe we can achieve great things this season.

“We have been working hard in pre-season and at training and whilst we know the competition will be tough, we are confident and ready to compete.

“With some new and young talent coming up through the club, this season will be a great opportunity for our players to compete with and against the best in the country.”

After an incredible first season in the Premier League pyramid, Eagles, who finished top of Premier League 3 losing just four games, will take on 2023 Premier League 2 promotion challengers Telstars.

“We’re super excited to embrace all the challenges of Prem Netball. It’s been many years in the making and almost five months since our historic achievement at the Play-Offs. We are prepared on and off the court and cannot wait to get going!”

Elsewhere, Leyton will host Sussex Thunder who have come down from Premier League 2 and Trafford, who are back for their second successive season in the third division, will host Northants Storm who will be hoping to go one better this year after finishing third.
