The Cardiff based Celtic Dragons are part of the Netball Superleague (UK), which consists of the top ten netball teams in Wales, Scotland and England, with the Dragons being the only team from Wales. The vocal club supporters are known as the 'green army'.
|Based in||Cardiff, Wales|
|Home venue||Sport Wales National Centre|
|Head coach||Trish Wilcox|
The Celtic Dragons was founded in 2005 in partnership with Welsh Netball Association and England Netball. The Dragons struggled throughout many of their Netball Superleague seasons finishing below top five until 2013, when they found success through the signing of towering Grenadian shooter Lottisha Cato. They reached the grand final that year, losing out against English powerhouses Team Bath.
The 2016 season saw the loss of Welsh internationals, Chelsea Lewis to Team Bath for a second season and Nia Jones who took a break from netball to concentrate on her football career. The dragons signed Fijian internationals Afa Rusivakula and Episake Kahatoka in replacement for Lewis and Jones. The Dragons also made a big money move for star Centre, Melissa Steingass, who dominated the court throughout the season.
The 2017 season saw the departure of Georgia Rowe and Evrie Brierton to Team Northumbria, Becky Oatley to newcomers Severn Stars and Afa Rusivakula to Northern Stars (netball) in New Zealand. In return, saw the signing of kiwi midcourter Stacey Peters from the Southern Steel and experienced Calypso shooter Khalifa McColin. The Dragons displayed some spirited netball, especially their home game against Scottish-based Sirens (netball) which was televised on Sky Sports.
Most of the Dragon's home Superleague games are played at the Sport Wales National Centre, Sophia Gardens.
