  • Most-watched game: 308,000 peak TV audience for Vixens v Magpies, opening round on 18 February
  • 43% more viewers tuned into Super Netball on Saturday nights on GEM, than did to ANZ Championship fixtures across 2016.

  • A total of 206,726 attended home and away matches in 2017, an average of just over 4,200 per game; above a pass mark for netball historically. That compares to 220,355 for all games last year.
