At the end of the 2011 international season, the team were ranked 3rd in the INF World Rankings.[1]


England have appeared at every Netball World Championships since their inception in 1963. Most recently, the team competed in the 2011 World Netball Championships in Singapore, finishing third. Their highest placing at a World Championship was second in 1975. They also earned a silver medal at the 2010 World Netball Series and three bronze medals from four Commonwealth Games campaigns.

International netball has been dominated by Australia and New Zealand, although England have had recent victories over both teams, as well as Jamaica, signalling their increasing competitiveness against other elite nations.[2] England won the 2011 World Netball Series in Liverpool, after defeating New Zealand in the final.[3]
