Performance Director for England Netball, David Parsons commented: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to travel to South Africa to compete in the Netball Quad Series.

“Following on what we hope will be a great series with the Jamaica Sunshine Girls, this is another big test and provides further opportunities for players to challenge themselves against the best in the world, and for us to observe players in our squad in a competitive environment ahead of the Netball World Cup.

“With the Netball World Cup in mind, it’s important we use this time over the next month to build on our learnings from the Commonwealth Games and the autumn internationals and put ourselves in a good place before everyone returns for the start of the domestic season.”
