Magnificent Melbourne ready to play

For the second time in as many weeks, highly sought after tickets to Lightning practice matches on the Sunshine Coast have sold out.

Free tickets to the members-only fixtures against Melbourne Vixens on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 January were made available online on a first-come, first-served basis, and Saturday’s allotment of tickets was snapped up quickly.

There are a limited number of tickets still available to foundation members for this Sunday’s showdown.

The popularity of the foundation Club is at an all-time high, with more than 1,650 fans now Sunshine Coast members.

Lightning Chief Executive Officer, Danielle Smith, said the two games against Vixens were a perfect opportunity to thank Lightning’s loyal members.

“We value our members and they deserve to see their team play an established Club like Melbourne right here on the Coast,” Smith said.

“Members are a vital part of our Club and making these fixtures available to them free of charge is one way we can bring them closer to the team.

“Vixens have a rich history and will provide a real test for our squad, and fans can expect to see two quality practice matches.”

A former Trans-Tasman Netball League winner, Melbourne will be a formidable opponent for Lightning which will be playing just its third match as a Club on Saturday.
