Back to business for Aussie Diamonds

Just six weeks after claiming Gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, the Australian Diamonds are back into camp to prepare for the upcoming International Netball Series.

The six-match Real Insurance Test Series will see the Diamonds take on the World Number 2 and Number 3 (International Netball Federation-ranked) New Zealand Silver Ferns and England Netball Team, featuring contests on both sides of the Tasman – including fixtures at Sydney’s Allphones Arena and Canberra’s AIS Arena (click here for tickets).

NSWSwiftsTV caught up with Australian shooter Caitlin Thwaites during a photoshoot with her fellow Golden Swifts– Kimberlee Green, Sharni Layton, and 2015 recruit Julie Corletto – who admitted to being excited to get back into camp life.

“It will be nice to see all the girls again and actually having something new to talk about instead of just seeing each other every single day.  Everyone has these exciting holidays to catch up on,” Caitlin told NSWSwiftsTV.

The Diamonds will begin their campaign in Invercargill on Thursday 2 October, playing four matches against the Silver Ferns before they meet England for two Tests.

Tickets are available now, so visit Ticketek to secure your seat today!  It could be your last chance to see the teams in action before the Netball World Cup 2015 in Sydney next August.
