Netball Super League 2023 Team Lists & Transfer News

*Last updated 20th December


Sadly, the 2023 season of the Netball Super League will now be without Wasps Netball, following the Wasps organisation going into administration. That leaves ten teams to do battle. The players who had signed for Wasps can however now be signed on as training partners in other teams and we will update you on that right here as it happens…

Wasps players (new team)
Chloe Essam (Severn Stars)
Rachel Fee (Severn Stars)
Georgia Lees (Saracens Mavericks)
Lauren Nicholls (Loughborough Lightning)
Alex Johnson (Loughborough Lightning)

Ella Powell-Davies has come into the Celtic Dragons team as full time replacement for the injured Leila Thomas.

Josie Huckle has come into the Manchester Thunder team as full time replacement for the injured Yasmin Roebuck.

Here is a look at how the ten teams stack up for 2023…
