Netball Super League General Overview & Teams

The Netball Super League was formed in 2005, taking over as the new top-level English netball competition from the short-lived Super Cup.

Since then, there have been 16 full seasons of the Super League, with only the 2020 season missing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the 16 seasons, the league has seen six different champions. Team Bath is the most successful team in league history, winning five titles.

The reigning and defending champions are Manchester Thunder, who won their fourth title last season in a perfect year that saw them go unbeaten.

10 teams will be competing in the 2023 season. It was originally meant to be 11, however unfortunately the Wasps Netball team was removed after the holding company for the team was placed in insolvency in October 2022.

The 10 teams who will be competing are:

  • Celtic Dragons
  • Leeds Rhinos
  • London Pulse
  • Loughborough Lightning
  • Manchester Thunder
  • Saracens Mavericks
  • Severn Stars
  • Strathclyde Sirens
  • Surrey Storm
  • Team Bath

Netball Super League Format

The Netball Super League season consists of 20 rounds in the regular season, with each team playing each other twice, once at home and once away.

Once the regular season is complete, the top four teams will go through to the playoffs.

The playoffs consist of the Semi-finals and the Grand Final. In the Semi-finals, the team in first will play the team in second, while the team in second will play third.

For the Grand Final, there are again two games played as they determine the final order of the season and the Grand Winner.

In terms of points for the regular season, it works the same as in football, only without any draws. Teams will get three points for a win and zero for a loss.

In the event of a tie at the end of regulation time, extra time will be played. Extra time comprises two seven-minute halves. Should a winner still not be declared, play will continue until a team goes two points ahead, at which point, they are then declared the winner.

At the end of the season, if any teams are level on points, they will be ranked first by goal difference, then goals scored if the GD is still level.
