24 January 2024, Pretoria – Following a series of retirements from some senior players in the SPAR Proteas setup and the lapses of performance contracts signed by the players, Netball South Africa has invited a total of thirty players to a training camp in Stellenbosch with the view of awarding new contracts. The federation had contracted around twenty-four 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 fifteen players from there to put on performance-based contracts.

The Training Camp started on the 22nd of January 2024 and will run until the 28th of January, with the announcement of the fifteen contracted players. 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.
