Loughborough Lightning open their doors to Wasps fans

Loughborough Lightning are extending a hand to the netball community following Wasps Netball’s departure from the Netball Super League with the offer of free entrance.

The Midlands club are giving Wasps supporters who held a season ticket last year the opportunity to continue watching live netball with free tickets to their first home game of the season.

Lightning take on Celtic Dragons at the Sir David Wallace Arena on 18 February as they begin their hunt for a second Netball Super League title and Wasps Season Ticket holders will be able to walk through the doors for free to enjoy the experience.

In the absence of Wasps Netball, several teams have embraced former and new players as a way of making sure all athletes can still be involved in the Super League.

Lightning welcomed back former player Lauren Nicholls as a training partner for the 2023 season after the 31-year-old made the decision to join Wasps last term.

Nicholls had previously made 75 appearances for the Loughborough franchise, including a Super League title in 2021.

Chloe Essam and Rachael Fee have joined Severn Stars while Ella Powell-Davies will be leaning into her Welsh roots at Celtic Dragons.

A statement from Loughborough Lightning said: “The Lightning family were deeply saddened to hear that Wasps Netball will no longer compete in the Netball Super League.

“The Battle of the Midlands was our most loved fixture every year and we will miss the fierce fight and determination each game brought us.

“Despite the strong rivalry that existed we are all part of one big netball family from the Super League teams that take to court, to the umpires and officials that turn up week in week out and the fans that bring love and atmosphere to every game.

“It is because of this Lightning Netball would like to offer our assistance where we can.”

To claim your free ticket, please complete the form on Loughborough Lightning’s website here.
