The Spar Protea netball team has returned from the European netball championships in Northern Ireland, where they played in the apparel of their new official apparel sponsor Canterbury, which is locally distributed by Brand-ID.

The national team also uses Skins compression wear from the same distributor.

The South African team won four of the five matches they played at the tournament, which served as preparation for the International Netball Federation (INF) Netball World Cup that will be held in Sydney 7-16 August.

The tournament was a wonderful opportunity for the coach and players to put into practice what they had learnt from former Australian coach, Norman Plummer, who spent valuable time with the national squad earlier this year, said Mimi Mthethwa, President of Netball South Africa.
