Your Complete Guide to the Netball World Cup 2023

Explore Cape Town

Explore Cape Town – With just a few days to go, excitement is reaching fever pitch as the Netball World Cup 2023 kicks off (or rather the first centre pass is thrown) right here in Cape Town.

This is the first time in the history of the tournament (since the initial world cup championship was held back in 1963) that the Netball World Cup will be held on the African continent, and the Mother City has the honourable privilege of hosting this momentous occasion. The Netball World Cup (NWC), previously known as the World Netball Championships, brings together the world’s top 16 teams, competing for the coveted NWC trophy.

The first stage of the tournament starts on 28 July 2023, and sees teams in four pools compete in a round-robin format – which means teams are eliminated after a certain number of losses.

The final showdown will be held on 6 August 2023, where the two best teams go head-to-head to be crowned the Netball World Cup champions.

The 16 teams on their way to Cape Town to compete in the event are South Africa, Australia, Barbados, England, Fiji, Jamaica, Malawi, New Zealand, Scotland, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, Wales, Zimbabwe.

Don’t miss a single pass, block, or goal with our complete guide to the Netball World Cup 2023.
