Here comes the Final Four!

After 18 gruelling rounds of action, four teams have risen above the rest and they face one final weekend to determine who will be crowned 2017 Vitality Netball Superleague Champions!

Having dominated the regular season, Loughborough Lightning head into the semi-finals as top seeds and will face five-time NSL champions, Team Bath.

The two sides first met in Round 3 when Lightning visited the south-west and stole all three points with a hard fought 41-47 victory.

In Round 10 the battle headed to the East Midlands when again a resolute display from the table toppers saw them take the win, this time 49-40.

Karen Atkinson’s team will be favourites having suffered just one loss during the regular season but the Blue and Gold enter the Final Four on a run of seven wins in eight matches.

The second semi-final on Saturday sees Wasps Netball face off with Manchester Thunder.

Having started the season slowly, Thunder continued their rise in Round 6 with a tremendous 52-58 success over Wasps in the West Midlands.

The two teams were closely matched throughout the campaign as they battled for second place in the table and it was Wasps who got the upper hand with a thumping 44-58 win in Manchester during Round 15.

With one win a piece during the 2017 season, this fight for a place in the Grand Final is expected to go all the way.

Both semi-finals will be aired LIVE on Sky Sports Mix.

Sunday begins with the traditional 3rd place play-off before all eyes then turn to the Grand Final as the 2017 Champions are crowned.

The Grand Final will also be shown LIVE on Sky Sports Mix from 4:30pm but who will be battling it out for the biggest title in British netball?
