The hotly-contested season came to a close on Saturday 6th April at Worcester Arena with all eight teams in action across six fantastic final games.

Some of the country’s most exciting and promising young netballers took to court with Wasps Netball securing the title with a 62-44 victory over Surrey Storm.

London Pulse, who finished as U19 NPL champions in 2018, enjoyed an impressive inaugural season in the U21 competition.

Back-to-back wins against Loughborough Lightning (41-51) and Manchester Thunder (57-49) saw them finish as runners-up ahead of last year’s champions Thunder, who finished in 3rd.

Wasps U21s Head Coach Dannii Titmuss said: “I am so proud of the girls. We missed out on the title by coming second last year, so it was great to show our strength again and get back on top this time around.

“This year we approached things a bit differently by looking closely at the key players for each of our opponents and how to deal with them, but also putting a lot of emphasis on what to do when we have the ball.
“We have a phenomenal group of athletes here and they were able to put all of that into practice in every game.”

A huge thank you to all the players, coaches, officials and volunteers for their hard work during another fantastic season.

Congratulations to all teams involved, especially to Wasps Netball on their unbeaten season and winning the NPL U21 title.
