Jamaican Netball Team hit town!

Australia takes on the highly-respected Jamaicans, ranked number three in the world, at the State Netball Hockey Centre in Melbourne on July 5 from 7.30pm and at the Sydney Sports Centre on Sunday, July 8 from 2.00pm.

 

Jamaica won a bevy of fans at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games with their athletic style of play and a dramatic, last-quarter fight back to force a draw against the Aussies in the preliminary round.

 

With that type of rivalry, fans can expect to see another gripping battle during the upcoming Test Series.

 

Former Jamaican star player and current national coach, Connie Francis says the Holden Netball Test Series is a key phase of their preparation strategy for the 2007 World Netball Championships in Auckland from November 10-17.

 

“The Jamaica Netball Team is a fairly young team both in age and experience. This opportunity to evaluate our performance levels is priceless and we appreciate all the work that has been put into making the trip possible,” Francis said.

 

“We intend to experiment with various combinations and strategies which will provide the younger players with well needed exposure and experience against top ranked teams prior to the World Netball Championships. I look forward to the challenge of coaching duties on this tour for coming up with the right blend of players to provide the right combination to win championships.”
