The Netball World Cup starts in Liverpool today and will see the best 16 teams on the planet go head to head over 20 thrilling sessions.

England head into the tournament as one of the favourites and it is hoped that the performances of Tracy Neville’s side over the next few weeks will inspire a new generation to take up the sport.

We know Netball is a fantastic and enjoyable way for people to get physically active and have invested more than £55 million of National Lottery money in netball specific projects over the last decade.

This has included contributing to the elite Vitality Roses as well as supporting the Back to Netball campaign which has seen more than 110,000 people get back into the sport.
