Netball South Africa (NSA) confirmed on Thursday that the Proteas will host the 2023 Netball Quad Series between New Zealand, Australia and England in Cape Town.

The Netball Quad Series will see South Africa host the event for the third time as they take on the world's best.

All matches will be played at Cape Town's International Convention Centre and will also be broadcast on SuperSport Variety 4.

The Proteas will use the event as a perfect opportunity to get some game time before hosting the Netball World Cup in the Mother City from 28 July to 6 August. 

"The timing of the Quad Series couldn't be more perfect than this because we are now a few months away from the World Cup," said Netball South Africa president, Cecilia Molokwane.

"Hosting Quad Series will give us an indication of where we are in terms of state of readiness. I think we will get an opportunity to gauge ourselves and figure out where we need to improve."

The three teams are expected to arrive in South Africa between the 16 and 17 January respectively, while the Proteas team will meet on 9 January to prepare for the Quad Series.

The Proteas' 15 player squad will be announced in January when the team meet after the festive break.

"The team has worked hard throughout the year and had to deal with a lot. Overall, we are happy with what they have been able to achieve," said Molokwane.

"We believe that this break is what the team needs, and they will come back in January understanding what is at stake. I believe that they will push hard to remind the world that they are here to compete."

Tickets for the Quad Series are expected to go on sale from the 15 December on Ticketpro and will range from R250-R500 and R100 for school going children.
