Win tickets to The Co-operative World Netball Series

See the fast and the ferocious battle it out before huge crowds at the MEN Arena

Win tickets to The Co-operative World Netball Series


'Netball just got hotter' is the slogan being used to announce the arrival of the World Netball Series in Manchester. The game has enjoyed a resurgence recently, shedding the image of thunder-thighed PE teachers for one of a pacey, vibrant sport. At this tournament at the MEN Arena from 9-11 October, it hopes to attract more new fans with a faster format, ticket deals, and a great atmosphere generated by 'fan zones' for supporters from each of the six countries taking part.

The block of seats for the England supporters sold out in record time, prompting organisers to open up another enclosure for home fans. The other countries in the World Series will all have their own fan zones in the arena with the Jamaica Jamboree, Kiwi Corner, Aussie Posse, Samoa Sector and Malawi Mezzanine all competing against each other in sound levels when their team gets on the court.

Each game will be played over four six-minute quarters and promises to be a high energy, awesome spectacle. Innovative rule changes will test the fitness, technical ability and tactical awareness of the best players in the world. If you're a netball fan, it's a must-see. If you're not, you'll become one after watching players compete at this level.

There's a number of deals available on tickets. If you book ten, you can get one free (ideal if you're part of a netball team and you want to give your coach a treat). And ladies who go to Saturday's matches with friends can take advantage of a ‘Ladies Night’ promotion. All girls attending the Saturday evening games can carry on the party with VIP entry into Pure nightclub at The Printworks. A deal for male netball fans will be announced soon.

Families are also being encouraged to attend with 15 per cent off Virgin train tickets into the city, free meals for kids at the Printworks’ Henry J Beans and Opus, plus free hot fudge sundaes at the famous Hard Rock Café.

All in all, it looks like it could the best sporting event this autumn.

The tournament takes place from Friday 9 October - Sunday 11 October at the MEN Arena. Adult tickets start at £15, family tickets at £35 and kids tickets at £5. Get them from www.worldnetballseries
