Q1. I haven't played netball since school - will I still be able to play?

A1. The aim of the Simple Netball League is to provide an opportunity for women who haven't played netball for a while to venture back onto the netball court! It's amazing how quickly you'll learn to play netball again and pick up the skills that you need. And don’t worry, there will be lots of other players in exactly the same position as you!

 

Q2. I don't have a team to play for!

A2. Not to worry, we also accept entries from individual players. We'll do all the leg work for you and place you in a team with other like-minded players. We'll even organise practice sessions for you and your team mates before the league starts.

Just register with us as an individual player. If you register with a friend, we'll ensure that you both get to play in the same team.

Go to the "Enter Now" page and fill in your details there.

 

Q3. I think I have a full team - what do I need to do next?

We would recommend that you have between 7-10 players in your team. If you're a player or two short, we can always put you in touch with individual players to make up the numbers.
When you're got your full team, go to the "Enter Now" page and fill in your details.

 

Q4. Will I need any netball equipment?

No - the courts, balls, bibs and even the umpires are all provided so your team can just turn up and play.

 

Q5. Do I have to wear a netball kit?

There are no kit requirements to be able play in the Simple Netball League - all you need is a good pair of trainers, some comfortable clothes to play in and off you go!

 

Q6. What's the format of the game?

It's a 7-a-side game played according to England Netball rules. Matches consist of two halves of 20 minutes.

 

Q7. Do I have to provide an umpire?

No, the umpires will be provided for you.

 

Q8. What do I do if I can't get a full team out each week?

Teams must commit to doing their best to field a full side each week (there will be a £30 fine if a team is unable to fulfil their weekly fixture).

We will however do our best to ensure that this never happens by allowing you to play "ringers" - registered players from a different team who would like to play an extra game that week

 

Q9. When are the matches played?

Matches are played on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings from 6.30pm - 9.45pm during the indoor season and 6.30pm - 9pm during the outdoor summer season.
