Over nine seasons in the trans-Tasman league, the Swifts consistently upheld their commitment to excellence, culminating in back-to-back grand final appearances during the league’s final two years.

In a remarkable underdog victory in 2019, the NSW Swifts clinched their first-ever Suncorp Super Netball premiership, a feat they repeated in 2021.
