🏐 London Pulse open their 2024 Netball Super League campaign at the Copper Box Arena against Loughborough Lightning. And in a repeat of the 2023 Grand Final the hosts will be seeking revenge! See below for the latest ticket information.
London Pulse enjoyed their best ever season in the Netball Super League (NSL) in 2023. Finishing top of the league at the end of the regular season the Londoners progressed through the play-offs where faced tonight’s opponents Loughborough Lightning in the Grand Final. But it wasn’t meant to be as Lightning fought back from an early deficit to win 57-48 at a sold-out Copper Box Arena. Now all eyes are on the 2024 season with London Pulse tickets on sale now.
With a young, exciting squad London Pulse are back for 2024 and looking to go one better. Starting tonight against Lightning in the first of eight home matches taking place throughout March and May (see below for the fixture list).
The Copper Box Arena was close to a fortress for London Pulse in 2023. Only Manchester Storm – who battled to a 58-51 victory on away soil – were able to blemish Pulse’s NSL home record.
The strength in depth of the 2023 London Pulse squad was demonstrated by the England netball 2023/24 roster in which Pulse had the most England Roses and Futures players of any club in the UK. The likes of Olivia Tchine, Zara Everitt, Funmi Fadoju, Lindsey Keable and Alicia Scholes were standout players last season. Expect many to return for the new campaign.
Stand by for London Pulse to showcase their 2024 squad against Loughborough Lightning. Can the hosts lay down a marker with an opening home win against champions Lightning? All will be revealed at one of the UK’s finest netball venues.
