The Silver Ferns will travel to London in January for an international quad series against host England, Australia and South Africa.

Subject to Covid-19 travel restrictions, the four international sides will take to the court from January 15 to January 19.

The teams will play a round-robin followed by third-fourth game and a final.

Silver Ferns head coach Dame Noeline Taurua said the series was an important part of the squad’s preparation for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, which get under way in July next year.

"To be able to open the year with the quad series against three other world-class teams is going to be hugely beneficial for our squad," Taurua said.

"With the uncertainty that Covid-19 has continued to bring to the international sporting landscape it’s really important to get as much on court competition as we can as we continue to build towards the Commonwealth Game in Birmingham."

The Silver Ferns trials camp will be held in Wellington on December 15-17 with the Silver Ferns team to be announced for the Netball Quad Series at the end of the camp.
