The Fiji Pearls will engage in three training matches ahead of the Netball World Cup in South Africa next year.

Netball Fiji Chief Executive Vivian Koster says they’re fortunate that teams have agreed to have a run on the court before the tournament starts on July 28th.

The Pearls have three tough opponents in their pool including Tonga, Australia and Zimbabwe and Koster says they should have some competitive experience beforehand.
