The 2023 Netball Super League season will start on Saturday, February 11 with the traditional Season Opener event taking place at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena.

The day of netball will mark the start of a 114-match season consisting of 20 rounds of regular-season matches.

The 2023 Grand Final and the third and fourth play-off will take place on Sunday, June 11 and the semi-finals will be held on June 9. After the conclusion of the Super League season, players' and fans' attention will turn to the international calendar and preparations for the Netball World Cup which will be held in South Africa from July 28 to August 6.

Manchester Thunder are the reigning Netball Super League champions after an unbeaten season in 2022 and a Grand Final victory over Loughborough Lightning at the Copper Box Arena.

The off-season has brought a wealth of player movements within the league including Jade Clarke and Chelsea Pitman joining London Pulse, Uganda international Stella Oyella arriving at Strathclyde Sirens and Layla Guscoth swapping Team Bath Netball for Surrey Storm.

England Netball have also confirmed they will not be partnering with their current headline partner for the 2023 season.

"Women's sport is seeing unprecedented growth which is set to continue and we have some highly ambitious plans for the future of the league, Fran Connolly, chief executive of England Netball, said.
