The British Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship returns on Saturday, October 12 at London's Copper Box Arena.
Featuring 12-minute matches, an all-star five-point line and a Golden Buzzer Power Play, the tournament is an all-action afternoon of non-stop, pulsating netball.
Wasps have already qualified for the event as defending champions and will be joined by the top seven teams from the 2019 Vitality Superleague. Teams have the opportunity to recruit two all-star players for the day, meaning international stars from around the world are set to be added to the line-up.
Matchroom boss Barry Hearn said: "The British Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship is already established as one of the most electrifying days in the domestic calendar. Last year we built on the success of the first Fast5 All Stars in 2017 and the packed crowd at the Copper Box were treated to a brilliant afternoon of netball.
"The event is already attracting top international players, as seen in 2018 when the likes of Sharni Layton and Ash Brazill came over. With the World Cup taking place in Liverpool and the continued success of the Roses, it's an exciting time for netball in the UK and we're thrilled to be bringing the Fast All-Stars back to the Copper Box for what promises to be another great event in October."

"Fast5 is always a fantastic spectacle of athleticism, flair and skill, and with the ever-increasing interest in netball, we're delighted to be working with Matchroom Sport again for the third staging of this tournament."
