Wise Security has had the privilege of looking after many high-profile Netball events. Our team recently secured and stewarded the Netball Quad Series at the Copper Box Arena, on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The event brought big crowds to all four days of competition, which saw the 4 best national teams from across the world competing for the Netball Quad Series Trophy, these included teams from South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and of course England’s own Vitality Roses.

These events brought their own unique challenges as the country was still under “Plan B” with regards to COVID Restrictions for all events. This meant additional checks for all of our team, and all spectators attending the event. Working with our client, we devised an ingress plan to ensure things went smoothly and that nobody missed a tip off!

Our Security team was drafted in prior to the event days to ensure the Copper Box Arena was fully secured for all team training sessions, as well as the events team setting up the arena for the prestigious tournament. On event days, the team were tasked with extensive checks for all attendees.

We also had a large contingent of Stewards working at all events, providing essential safety provisions around the arena, as is necessary for events of this size. Along with this they provided customer service to all attending to ensure that all in attendance had an enjoyable day.

Following the events, our clients, England Hockey, were full of praise for our team and their efforts across the whole week. This was the first of many Netball events Wise Security will be responsible in 2022. London Pulse will be using the Copper Box Arena for the majority of their home fixtures this season, with Wise Security providing Security and Stewarding solutions to all these events.

2022 looks to be the year for Netball and Wise Security! We look forward to supporting this fantastic sport and watching it grow and grow has been an immense pleasure.
