Spar Proteas to Play Test Series against Wales

Durban, South Africa – With the Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League done and dusted, the cream of South African netball will be in action again in June, when the SPAR Proteas meet Wales in the three-Test SPAR International Challenge at the ICC in Durban.

It will be a real feast of netball, as the three Tests will be preceded by matches between the South African and Welsh Under 21 teams.

The Proteas last played Wales in the Netball World Cup in Sydney last year, when South Africa beat Wales by 60 goals to 38. South Africa also beat Wales in the European Championships in Belfast last year.

The Proteas have played Wales 11 times, winning every time. South Africa are currently ranked fifth in the world and Wales are ranked eighth.

The matches will be played on Friday June 17, Saturday June 18 and Sunday June 19.

Tickets for the matches cost R20 and are available from Computicket.
