It’s finally here – Grand Final weekend is upon us, and what an exciting schedule of netball awaits.

There are just four games left of the 2022 Vitality Netball Superleague, and they will determine who takes the crown.

The action gets underway on Friday evening as Manchester Thunder take on Team Bath Netball at Belle Vue at 6.30pm, before Loughborough Lightning welcome London Pulse at 8pm.

The two semi-finals will determine which two sides face off for the title at the Copper Box in London on Sunday.

All games will be broadcast on Sky Sports and tickets are still available for the Grand Final here.

Manchester Thunder vs Team Bath, Friday, 6.30pm, Belle Vue Arena, live on Sky Sports Action

The first of two semi-finals takes place in Manchester, as Thunder welcome Team Bath to Belle Vue.

Thunder went the entire season undefeated, winning all 20 games in the regular season but know it will count for nothing if they do not finish the job in the play-offs.

Team Bath secured fourth spot with a week to spare after being run hard most of the way by Saracens Mavericks and will be hoping to pull off an upset to book their place in the Grand Final.

Thunder edged past the Blue & Gold 57-53 at the Team Bath Arena in March before a comprehensive 66-45 win at home in May.

Bath boss Anna Stembridge will step down at the end of the season and will hope to go out with a bang, while Karen Greig will hope her side can continue their unbeaten streak.

The match will be show on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports YouTube from 5:30pm. You can watch LIVE on YouTube here.

You can also still by tickets for the event at Belle Vue, Manchester, here.

The second game sees Loughborough Lightning face up against play-off first-timers London Pulse.

Defending champions Lightning will be hoping to seal a place in the final to defend their crown, while Pulse will look to cause a stir with a first Grand Final experience.

Lightning have lost just two games this season, and beat Pulse both home and away, and will hope to do repeat their feat for a third time on Friday.

For Pulse, simply qualifying for the play-offs represents a success for Sam Bird’s youthful side, but they will want to go one better and ensure they will be playing at the showpiece event on Sunday.

The match will be show on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports YouTube from 8:00pm. You can watch LIVE on YouTube here.

Grand Final, Sunday 4.15pm, Copper Box Arena, live on Sky Sports Arena & Mix – tickets available here

The final game of the season comes on Sunday at London’s Copper Box where the 2022 Vitality Netball Superleague champions will be crowned.

Thousands of spectators will be in East London to witness the season finale in what should be an electric atmosphere to celebrate an exhilarating season of netball.

Coverage starts on Sky Sports Arena, Mix and YouTube from 1:45pm with the third-place play-off while coverage of the Grand Final begins from 3:45pm. You can watch the third-place play-off on YouTube here and the Grand Final on YouTube here.

Tickets are still available for the Grand Final, and can be purchased here.
