Aussie Super Netball players get pay boost

Super Netball players will receive at least 90 percent of their full salary from the start of the competition in August until the end of the 2020 contract period on November 30, giving them a pay boost.

In March it was agreed that players in the Australian league would only receive 30 per cent of their salaries in order to reduce the financial impact of COVID-19 and this was lifted to 70 per cent in June.

That was originally scheduled to last until the end of the agreement but has been upped in the new pay deal.

The league, teams and Australian Netball Players' Association (ANPA) worked together to hammer out the new figures, plus two additional months of health insurance allowance for October and November.

Super Netball chief executive Chris Symington said he was pleased to be able to reward the players for their sacrifices this season, which has involved all teams relocating to Queensland to ensure the competition went ahead from August 1.

"Our players have gone above and beyond this year to deliver what has been an extraordinary season, so the league and teams are pleased to be able to agree on this final payment outcome with the playing group," Symington said in a statement.

"We appreciate all the sacrifices that our players have made in order to make this season happen and the maturity at which they have approached these discussions.

"It's a credit to the success of the season that we were able to make this final update to the agreement."

There's one regular round of the competition followed by three weeks of finals, including the title decider in Brisbane on October 18.
