Equipment and Uniforms
Only a ball supplied or approved by the Competition Manager shall be used
Players must wear appropriate footwear, definitely no bare feet or dangerous spikes
All teams should play in matching coloured shirts. This not only looks better, it also helps the referee to distinguish teams.
Jewellery & Nails
No jewellery is to be worn. If you are unable to take a piece of jewellery off, you must tape or cover it up
Nails should be short and rounded. If a complaint is made to the umpire or staff, player's may be asked to tape their nails or asked to wear netball gloves (Not supplied).
Blood & Injury Time
If a player has blood on their body, they must leave the court immediately to remove or stop the bleeding and cover the affected area. Player's whether bleeding or injured have 1 minute injury time. If the player takes any longer they will need to remove themselves from the court and play will resume.
Injury time is only replayed in semi-finals and finals
The umpire's decision is final. They may penalise the offending player or team with whatever is considered appropriate under the rules of the game. E.g. For dangerous play or misconduct the umpire may warn the offending player, or send them from the court for a specified time.
The umpire also has the right to warn against harassing from the sidelines - being either from players or spectators. The offending team may be penalised &/or player's or spectators can be asked to leave the centre.
Under no circumstances does the Student Guild tolerate the abuse of our umpires. If a player or team has a problem with an umpire, please speak to the social sport co-ordinator on duty. If a player continues to disregard the rules set down, they may be suspended or asked to leave the centre permanently.
The umpire's decision is final in all matters relating to the game. At no time during a game should a player question an umpire, however at a break, a player may ask for clarification of a rule.
