The INF Netball World Cup is an international netball championship held every four years. Inaugurated in 1963, it pits the best countries from around the globe to see who will win the coveted cup. Since its inception, the World Cup has been dominated by both Australia and New Zealand, who have won 14 between them.
It’s no wonder Australia and New Zealand have dominated this competition, given their teams are made up from players who take part in the ANZ Championship, the premier netball competition in the world. Australia were crowned inaugural World Champions, winning the first ever World Cup in 1963. Since then, it has mostly gone back and forth between Australian and New Zealand, bar for an inspiring victory by Trinidad and Tobago in 1979.
Australia holds the record for the most world cup victories, having been crowned world champs on ten different occasions. They also hold the record for most consecutive World Cup titles, winning it three times in a row on two separate occasions.
