Australia won a first-ever FAST5 Netball World Series title after beating South Africa 34-20 in the Grand Final in Christchurch. Third place went to hosts New Zealand.

The netball community revelled in the return of the shortened version of the game with a vibrant and colourful two days of competition as all teams, after a three-year hiatus, enjoyed the mix of intense rivalry along with the light-hearted nature of the event.

A largely unknown and young team, South Africa delivered a close and tight first half before Australia put their foot down with a dominant second half.

Playing their best netball of the tournament, the New Zealand secured the bronze medal with a 39-25 win over England.

Uganda, showing their growing stature in world netball, and who quickly became crowd favourites, signed off in style when cementing fifth spot at their first-ever experience of FAST5 netball with a 32-10 win over Jamaica.
