The Fijian Pearls will play three tests against Singa­pore on Wednesday, Thurs­day and Saturday.

The Vicki Wilson-coached team departed on Sunday in preparation for the Netball World Cup in Eng­land on July 12-21.

“The national team will play three test matches against Singapore this week. The girls then fly to Darwin for the Arafura Games the follow­ing week,”Wilson said.

“We thank the Fiji National Sports Commission, Fijian government, Australian government and Net­ball Australia for their financial support for the team.”

The Fijians will also meet the Sil­ver Ferns as part of their prepara­tion.

Netball New Zealand chief execu­tive officer Jennie Wyllie said they were pleased to secure quality op­position ahead of the Netball World Cup in July. They excited to host Fiji again this year.

The upcoming International Net­ball Series will be a world’s first when the Silver Ferns play games against the New Zealand Invita­tion Men’s, Fijian Pearls and an All Stars side at Pulman Arena in Pa­pakura from June 26-29.

“We are thrilled to create a world’s first with the Silver Ferns playing the NZ men Invitation team. Wyllie said.

“We’re excited to have Fiji back as they will offer a different style and it also gives them the opportunity for some tough matches as they too look ahead to the Netball World Cup.”
