Welcome to the Ultimate Netball Club

4th October 2018

The opening round of 2019 Vitality Netball Super League sees the return of Super 10 on Saturday 5 January, with all 10 teams preparing to take to the court. At the Arena, Birmingham we will face Manchester Thunder in the final match of the day.

Our first home game of 2019 sees us take on 2018 finalists Loughborough Lightning on Friday 25 January, with a 7.00pm centre-pass at Hertfordshire Sports Village. We head back to the University of Essex on Saturday 16th February for our first TV match versus Team Bath which, as 'old rivals', is always set to be a thriller. Over the Easter Bank Holiday we head to the Ricoh Arena with back-to-back fixtures against Celtic Dragons & Team Bath on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 April. The final round of fixtures sees us host Strathclyde Sirens on Saturday 4 May at Hertfordshire Sports Village.

Director of Netball, Kat Ratnapala had this to say about 2019: "benecosMavericks staff and I have been working hard over the summer to recruit and welcome back existing players from last year, existing Mavericks players from previous seasons and two newbies to the Mavericks family! 

We can't wait to get out in front of our amazing fans to play at University of Hertfordshire, University of Essex and a brand new venue for us this season at Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes. 

In 2018 we were disappointed to finish 5th in the league and, whilst there was lots of positives to take, there was some hard lessons learnt. 

We are keen to get out there with our new look squad for 2019, the strength and depth we have this year means that we are a team to watch this season, so bring it on!"

Make sure you don't miss out on the opportunity to see the black & purple back in action in 8 home matches during 2019!!
