Introduction to Umpiring

COVID-19 - Level 4 - Lockdown

We are at Level 4 of New Zealand’s four-level COVID-19 alert system. It is likely Level 4 measures will stay in place for a number of weeks. 

Everyone should stay at home. This is the best thing we can all do to stop the spread of COVID-19. This will save lives.

The game of Netball will not be resuming in any form until the government lifts the Lockdown and allows sport to resume.

We will send out information to Club and Team Managers as and when it becomes available to us.

Do watch out on our website and Facebook pages in the coming weeks for ways in which you can still be part of the sport we all love from your home

Stay safe and stay at home so that we can see you all back on the courts in the near future.
