With less than a month to go participant tickets have now sold out for one-of-a-kind netball tournament Red Bull Switch Up taking place at London’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday 17thNovember. However for the first time since the competition started spectators can sign up for free tickets* at RedBull.com.
Red Bull Switch Up is a netball competition, but not as you know it. The unique set of rules are designed to test the versatility of individual players and teams, with every player able to shoot and forced to quickly turn their game play from attack to defence. Teams of four players compete for five-minute halves on a half-court with just one goal. Points are awarded for each goal depending on the player’s position in the three scoring zones available.
In a tournament first, there will be spectator tickets available for netball fans to watch the tournament at London’s Copper Box Arena. Vitality Netball Superleague team London Pulse will take to their home ground to battle it out in the Elite League against top University and Premier League teams such as University of Bath Netball (Team Bath), Liverpool University Netball Club, UCL Netball Club and Poly Netball Club.
Former England player and Wasps head coach Tamsin Greenway will be commentating at the tournament – providing her advice and experience to players throughout the day.
Tamsin Greenway said: “Red Bull Switch Up is the perfect tournament to find the ‘all round’ netballer and I’m excited with the high standard of teams confirmed for this year. The atmosphere will be even more electric with the added pressure of playing in front of a huge crowd. It’ll be great to see how the top teams such as London Pulse cope with the unique rules and pressure.”
The London tournament of Red Bull Switch Up will be live-streamed on both England Netball and Netball Scotland’s Facebook pages.
