Following a series of retirements from several senior players in the Spar Proteas setup and the lapsing of performance contracts signed by the players, Netball South Africa invited a total of thirty players to a training camp in Stellenbosch with the view to award new contracts.

The federation had contracted around 24 players back in 2022 with these being performance-based contracts expected to run until the end of the 2023 Netball World Cup.

“As Netball South Africa, we decided to invite a group of 30 players, hoping to select 15 players from there to put on performance-based contracts. Following a few retirements late last year, we believe now is the time to start the replacement process. Although we currently do not have a head coach, we are working closely with the shortlisted candidates during this training camp,” said Netball South Africa President Cecilia Molokwane.

The training camp started on 22 January and will run until 28 January, when the 15 contracted players will be announced. The camp is taking place at the University of Stellenbosch.

Players invited to the training camp are:

Lefébre Rademan; Nicholé Taljaard; Owethu Ngubane; Rolene Streutker; Kamogelo Maseko; Sian Moore; Tinita van Dyk; Muhluri Hlatshwayo; Alice Kennon; Nomfundo Mngomezulu; Nontsikelelo Mazibuko; Khanyisa Chawane; Refiloe Nketsa; Jeanté Strydom; Lungile Mthembu; Shannon Bartlett; Bianca de Wee; Amber Coraizin; Milla Coetzee; Tarle Mathe; Noluthando Maliehe; Danielle van Nieuwenhuysen; Nicola Smith; Jamie van Wyk; Boitumelo Mahloko; Ané Retief; Karla Pretorius; Nozipho Ntshangase; Martiné Jordaan; Elri Liebenberg.
