The London Live 2018 event comes straight after the great success of England’s netball team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia. The gold of the England Roses produced significant excitement around the Londoners. This success inspired a great number of people to play netball themselves and the increase is showed by London Sport Awards 2018 shortlisted nominee MyLocalPitch, their site showing an increase of 48.9% in netball enquires.

CEO of MyLocalPitch, Jamie Foale, commented: “England Roses’ incredible win was an outstanding achievement and it’s awesome to see it having a positive impact at the grassroots level. It’s an ideal time of year to play netball and there are many fantastic places to enjoy a game. The more people we have playing, the better, and if this momentum continues the Olympics are going to have a hard time keeping the sport out of the games.”
