The 2023 Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) Signing Window will officially open on Monday 8 August 2022.

From August 8, all 11 Superleague clubs can announce their new signings and retained players for the 2023 season. 

Clubs will be expected to announce their squads of 15 in full by the deadline of October 14 2022. Players must be fully registered before they are announced.

With clubs being allowed to approach players from other clubs who are currently out of contract following the conclusion of the 2022 campaign, negotiations are already well underway. 

As well as eye-catching movement between our clubs, they can also look abroad to sign talent and are permitted to have up to two non-UK players in the squads.

Last season, we saw some of the biggest signings in VNSL history. Huge names such as Natalie Metcalf, Proscovia Peace and Phumza Maweni all arrived to make lasting impressions in the league last term.

There were also some serious movements between our Superleague sides. Sigi Burger left London for Leeds, Georgia Rowe joined Celtic Dragons from Severn Stars, and Fran Williams departed Wasps for local rivals Loughborough Lightning.

There have already been some notable departures announced during the off-season. Title-winners Manchester Thunder have lost the likes of Joyce Mvula, Eleanor Cardwell, Laura Malcolm and Caroline O’Hanlon.

Saracens Mavericks, meanwhile, have started a new era with Kadeen Corbin, Chloe Essam, Georgia Lees and Gabby Marshall leaving Hertfordshire. You can see the full list of outgoings here.
