Sapphire Series – Next Gen Netball

September 2018 Update

The Sapphire Series will align with Netball Queensland’s vision of transforming lives, by providing a semi-professional, local platform for players, coaches and umpires to step up to the national stage. The Sapphire Series will also create local heroes. 


It will connect young netballers to local heroes who they aspire to be and give them opportunity to watch the matches live at the new State Netball Centre or via live streaming on their mobile device.  The Sapphire Series will replace and build upon the highly successful Queensland State Netball League which commenced in 2001. 


The Sapphire Series will commence in June 2019 following the Australian Netball League season


After allowing license applicants an additional month to finalise their submissions the Sapphire Series Sub Committee have made their recommendations to the NQ Board who have finalised the licenses for the inaugural Sapphire Series.


We look forward to announcing the license holders in the coming weeks so stay tuned.
