This year, the Fast 5 Netball World Series was back for the first time since 2018. Christchurch in New Zealand hosted the event which is reserved for the shorter form of the game.

Fast 5, as the name suggests, consists of just five players on the court (no wing attack or wing defence), and uses three different scoring zones, with teams’ scoring being doubled during a “power play”.

In a change to the previous rules, teams didn’t get to choose when they took their power play this time. The power play now automatically comes in for both teams in the last 90 seconds of each six-minute quarter.

The tournament once again featured the top six-ranked netball nations in the world. But for the first time, that meant Uganda competed. They took the place of Malawi which had been to every other staging of the event.

The event was broadcast by Sky Sport in New Zealand. It was also shown on 7Plus in Australia, SuperSport in South Africa, FanCode in India, Digicel in most of the Pacific Islands, and SportsMax through much of the Caribbean. Elsewhere, fans were able to watch through Netball Pass

 

These were the six competing teams and their world rankings:

AUSTRALIA (1)
NEW ZEALAND (2)
JAMAICA (3)
ENGLAND (4)
SOUTH AFRICA (5)
UGANDA (6)

Another first this year was a Men’s competition featuring three teams:

AUSTRALIA
NEW ZEALAND
ENGLAND
