The Vitality Netball Superleague returns to normal this weekend after a bumper crop of action at the Spring Showdown last weekend.

Rounds 13 and 14 saw crucial wins for Celtic Dragons and Severn Stars, while London Pulse revitalised their Play-Off hopes with back-to-back wins.

Round 15 has five games on offer across three days, here’s how to make sure you catch everything on court.

Team Bath Netball v Severn Stars, Saturday 4pm

The weekend gets underway with Team Bath taking on a Severn Stars side fresh off of an important 56-47 victory over Wasps.

The win was Stars’ second of the season and will give them confidence going into the game against a Bath side looking to bounce back from a 64-54 defeat to Play-Off rivals Leeds Rhinos.

The result leaves Bath in fifth, three points outside the top four while Stars drew level on points with Celtic Dragons at the bottom and both sides will be looking to move up the table with a win.

Centre pass is at 4pm with highlights available on the VNSL YouTube channel.

Loughborough Lightning v Strathclyde Sirens, Saturday 7pm live on Sky Sports YouTube

The TV cameras are in Loughborough on Saturday as Lightning welcome Strathclyde Sirens to the Sir David Wallace Arena.

Sirens currently sit ninth in the table with four wins so far this season and lost their only Spring Showdown game to leaders Manchester Thunder 73-51.

However, the Glasgow side will be hoping for a positive result against Lightning who picked up two wins from two in Birmingham, narrowly beating Surrey Storm and Celtic Dragons.

Lightning sit just three points behind leaders Manchester Thunder and will hope to keep the pace as they head into the final quarter of the season.

Centre pass will be live on Sky Sports at 7pm with highlights available on the VNSL YouTube channel.

Wasps v Manchester Thunder, Saturday 7pm

The final game on Saturday is the first of two in Coventry this weekend, as Manchester Thunder are the first visitors to the Coventry Building Society Arena to take on Wasps.

Wasps lost both of their games at the Spring Showdown, 44-38 to Pulse and 56-47 to Stars, and so will be wanting to get back to winning ways this weekend.

Unbeaten Manchester Thunder stand in their way, with Karen Greig’s side netting a record 80 goals against Surrey Storm last weekend.

They will pose a tough test for Wasps as they look to move into the top eight, while Thunder will want to retain their invincible status.

Centre pass is at 7pm with highlights available on the VNSL YouTube channel.

Wasps v Leeds Rhinos, Sunday 5pm, live on Sky Sports YouTube

Wasps are then back in action again on Sunday, with Leeds Rhinos the visitors this time.

Rhinos picked up a valuable victory over Bath to keep their Play-Off hopes alive after a disappointing defeat to Celtic Dragons at the Spring Showdown.

Sigrid Burger was in fine form, shooting 49 goals against Bath, and Wasps will have to shackle the South African to come out with all three points.

Centre pass is live on Sky Sports at 5pm with highlights available on the VNSL YouTube channel.

Celtic Dragons v London Pulse, Monday 5.30pm, live on Sky Sports Main Event

Round 15 closes with London Pulse travelling to take on Celtic Dragons on Monday Night Netball.

Dragons picked up a long-awaited victory against Leeds Rhinos after a number of narrow defeats, while Pulse surged back up the table with wins against Wasps and Saracens Mavericks.

Olivia Tchine and Alicia Scholes shone for Pulse as the young team continue to impress this season as they look to qualify for the Play-Offs for the first time.

Both sides will subsequently be looking to keep their momentum going with victory in front of the cameras at the Sport Wales National Centre on Monday evening.

Centre pass is at 5.30pm with highlights available on the VNSL YouTube channel.
