The 2019-20 NFNL summer netball competition commences on Friday November 8.
A record-high 44 teams will compete in the fourth iteration of the summer netball season.
The opening four rounds of the season will be graded, with all teams to compete in one pool. They will then be separated into six sections at the completion of grading.
Matches will be played at three venues in the opening stages of the season. They include:
