WASPS Netball will take to the court for the first time as they face England U21 ahead of England Roses vs Jamaica at the Ricoh Arena on December 4.

Fans with tickets for England Roses vs Jamaica will now get the chance to watch two fantastic matches for the price of one as Emily Perry’s U21 squad take to court at the home of Wasps Netball.

England’s Young Roses will take on Wasps Netball at 3:15pm before international netball takes centre stage for the first time in Coventry.

As the latest addition to the sporting hub at the Ricoh Arena, fans can get a taste of what to expect from Tamsin Greenway’s squad ahead of the 2017 Vitality Netball Superleague season.

“Tamsin Greenway, Director of Wasps Netball, said: “This is a great chance for the girls to get some game-time before the new season starts in February – we are still a developing team and opportunities like this are invaluable to help us improve.

“We have made a string of signings, and in the last few weeks we have been putting the work in on the practice court and things have been coming together really well.”

Along with two mouth-watering netball matches, fans can also get a taste for a Wasps Netball matchday experience within the Fan Village in the Ericsson Indoor Arena, with a host of netball activities, music and more for the whole family.
