Last year saw Manchester Thunder host the inaugural Mike Greenwood Trophy Tournament at The Manchester Thunderdome. Over 600 fans witnessed the hosts walk away with both trophies, a fitting tribute to their former coach Mike Greenwood who sadly passed away in 2011.
The Thunderdome will play host once again on Saturday 30th of November to the only tournament of its kind in the UK.
The Mike Greenwood Trophy brings together both Netball Superleague teams and their development under-19, National Performance League teams. Yorkshire Jets, Team Northumbria and national side Wales, currently eighth in the world, join hosts Manchester Thunder for a full day’s feast of netball.
With a title sponsor to be confirmed, Manchester Thunder is once again bringing top level sport to the city of Manchester.
Managing Director Debbie Hallas commented: “The MGT Tournament will be the only tournament this season bringing together so many quality teams together under one roof. With the Welsh National team coming into the mix this should create a sporting spectacle for all netball fans.”
“Mike left a fantastic legacy and it is great to keep this alive in his honour.”
