alt=Netball World Cup 2015 World Champions Australia"

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Team Australia solidly worked their way through the intense competition draw to find themselves up against New Zealand in the final, in an on-court battle between friendly or not so friendly rivals the Diamonds (AUS) and the Silver Ferns (NZ). Although the Aussie’s convincingly led the scoreboard throughout the match by ¾ time the Kiwi ladies had gained much needed ground. The captain of Australia Ms Laura Geitz rallied her defensive team and ultimately sealed the winning deal with notable assistance from Caitlin Basset and her perfect goal shooting efforts. At the minute remaining mark, Australia was ahead by only three goals, in-turn the ladies played stronger, held their nerve and recorded a nail-biting 58 to 55 goal victory at their home ground in Sydney. Fact; this finals match set an attendance world record for a netball game with 16,849 fans filling the Allphones Arena!

Netball World Championships 2015 / Tournament Highlights

Netball aficionado’s and sports fans alike will recall the netball world cup 2015 to be the event that really put this high energy women’s sport firmly on the map. The 16 competing teams absolutely brought their A game to play, as witnessed by many a cheering netball devotee. For many it was a once in lifetime chance to see some of the finest female athletes from each country live. It was an intensely heated contest and all the ladies gave their very best performance to hopefully take home the trophy.

  • Team Jamaica played hard, fast and looked poised to win more than a few times during several defining preliminary matches over the tournament. Unfortunately, their 67-56 knock out series loss to Australia in the semi-final halted what could have a dream run for the Caribbean team aka the ‘Sunshine Girls’.

  • Malawian goal shooter Myayi Kumwenda was the most outstanding player of the tournament. Her laser precision aim landed her more points than any other netball world cup 2015 player over the course of the August 9th– 16th 2015 competition.

  • Usually the Netball World Cup is almost solely contested between the two Antipodean aggressors of the sport, the Australia Diamonds and the New Zealand Silver Ferns. However, in 2015 team England entered the draw as a highly tipped favourite to topple the title runners. As the then world number three team, the English ‘Roses’ under the guidance of coach Tracey Neville took to the court filled with both exuberance and anticipation. Women’s sport was having its moment in the sun but in the end the fierce competition proved too much, and the Roses wilted under pressure. Regulating themselves to a commendable third place once again.

The Netball World Cup 2015 final results saw team Australia reign as champions for three years straight. But, will they claim the winning title again in 2019? This time around Liverpool hosts the Netball World Cup and the English Roses will be primed to blossom on home soil.
