London Pulse’s Funmi Fadoju will make her British Fast5 Netball All-Stars debut: “I’m so excited to take part in my first Fast5 All-Stars.

Loughborough Lightning’s Director of Netball Sara Francis-Bayman added: “Lightning are excited to be entering this year’s competition as defending champions but will be attacking the tournament like there’s nothing to lose. It’s a great chance for new players to get court time and have some fun with the team whilst fighting for some serious prize money.”

Featuring 12-minute matches, an all-star 5-point line, and a Golden Buzzer Power Play, the British Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship is an all-action afternoon of non-stop, pulsating netball.
