    BONUS Episode - Vitality Roses CWG Squad Announcement

    Welcome to a super special bonus episode of Qtr Time, the UK's ultimate netball podcast covering all things netball in the UK and beyond! This season we’re excited to be partnered with Carbon Jacked.


    This episode is a recording of a live Twitter space which we hosted on Tuesday 21st June, the day after the England Roses Commonwealth Games 2022 Squad announcement. You can see the full list of players selected and the England Netball press release here. 


    We were so lucky to be joined by four super special guests: Ex-Aussie Diamonds Head Coach Lisa Alexander, Ex-England Roses Head Coach Anna Stembridge, Former England Roses Captain Pamela Cookey and Saracens Mavericks Head Coach Camilla Buchanan to help us analyse all the major talking points. We cover defenders, middies and attackers, before discussing experience vs youth, preparations, the pressure and expectation to win gold, and finally moving on to debate how England stacks up against the other nations in the Top 5. There are so many comments, thoughts and questions from our lovely listeners and we are so thrilled to be able to bring you this conversation in full. Grab a cuppa and enjoy!

    S2, Episode 20 - World Netball with Clare Briegal

    Welcome to Season 2 Episode 20 of Qtr Time, the UK's ultimate superfan netball podcast! This season we’re excited to be partnered with Carbon Jacked.


    This episode is a bumper recap of anything you might have missed in the netball world over the past few weeks. We’ll be taking a brief look at some of the international squads for the Commonwealth Games which have been announced so far, including Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, South Africa, Jamaica and Australia, with some further information on the NZ and England announcements. Then we’ll bring you up to date with the results from the ANZ finals, which teams have made it to the SSN finals (plus the news on Netball Australia's financial state.....) and any major player transfer news from the VNSL including retirements and moves down under.


    Our special guest this week is none other than the World Netball CEO Clare Briegal. We talk to Clare about growing the global game, when we can expect to see netball in the Olympics, world rankings, the formation of the World Netball Foundation, bouncing back from COVID and looking ahead to the Commonwealth Games in just a few weeks' time.


    Today's episode is the final episode of Season 2 of the podcast. It’s been such a pleasure nattering about netball every week since February and we wanted to give a huge shoutout to everyone who has listened in and shared your comments and thoughts on the episodes via our social media. We aren’t going too far away, and we’ll be doing another recorded Twitter space in honour of the upcoming England Roses announcement, so stay tuned on our socials for the news of when that will take place. We’ll also be re-releasing some of our previous interviews which make for really interesting listening over the next few weeks. We will of course be bringing you all the analysis and updates you need from the Commonwealth games starting at the end of July so never fear!

PulseStan ,

Unique netball show asking insightful qus

Love this podcast - Lucy and Lucy really love netball and get the best out of their interviewees by asking well thought out questions not asked by other shows. I’ve learnt so much and can’t miss a show

SophieAnnabel ,

Love the Lucys!

Lucy squared are just so lovely - they have great chat with guests, plus the analysis into games is so insightful yet easy enough to understand if you’re not that clued up with technicalities!
Probably the best UK pod currently given the calibre of guests and there’s enough chat to last a good long walk.

StephLovesNetty ,

Three Word Summary - What A Podcast!

Absolutely love listening to Qtr Time podcast, every week they have fantastic guests from the netball world, discussing key issues. Really enjoy the weekly round ups of the matches from the VNSL, SSN and ANZ leagues - you can tell how much Lucy and Lucy LOVE the game, as they speak so passionately about it. Have recommended this to all the girls on my netball team - a must listen for any netball fan!
