Vitality Netball World Cup to host celebrity BBC Sport Relief Match

A special BBC Sport Relief celebrity netball match, hosted by popular presenter Clare Balding, will take place on Friday 19 July, following the day’s World Cup action.

Hoping to fulfil a childhood dream of lifting a sporting trophy, huge netball fan and comedy legend Jennifer Saunders will captain one of the teams made up of celebrities and netball legends.

She will face tough competition from a star studded team led by Strictly Come Dancing’s Oti Mabuse. Oti, who grew up playing netball in South Africa, will be hoping her years of dance training pay off as she hot foots round the court at the M&S Bank Arena Liverpool.

The match will take place following two World Cup play-off games (teams to be confirmed) and spectators attending Session 16 on Friday 19 July will be able to enjoy the exhibition game as part of their session ticket.
