Suncorp Super Netball Round 12 Game Day Information
FRIDAY NIGHT FEVER!
Our second clash of the season against West Coast takes place tomorrow night at USC Stadium. The sides squared off in Round 6 and Lightning triumphed 66-49, which is still the team’s highest total of the season. Lightning currently sits third on the competition table, just two points off top spot. At the other end, Fever is languishing in seventh, fifteen points behind Vixens. Herein lies the danger. The WA Club travels east with nothing to lose while Lightning is keen to finish in the top two and contest a major semi-final. With Australian Diamond stalwart, Nat Medhurst leading Fever, the pride of the west will no doubt be desperate to record just their third victory of the competition. GAME ON!

FAN ENGAGEMENT: Lightning athletes will be available to sign autographs shortly after the conclusion of the game (10 minutes after the game). This will occur in the entrance foyer to the Stadium. Half the team will sign for 15 minutes, then they will swap with the other half of the team signing for another 15 minutes. Signings are limited to one item each and minimal photos. This is to ensure the players have their correct recovery time and fairness that everyone gets a chance to get a signature. We appreciate your assistance in ensuring we can get the balance right for everyone!
PLEASE NOTE: While the action on-court will be red-hot, the stadium itself can be quite cool. The air conditioning system works perfectly, so if you feel the cold, we suggest you bring something warm to wear. If you’re bringing a pram, please ensure to leave it in the front entry foyer on arrival – prams cannot be left in the aisle ways.
