Finding Players – Ringers Rule


We understand that from time to time, whether through illness or work commitments etc, your team may be short of a player. Netball Fun League has set up dedicated "Ringers" Groups on Facebook to help you complete your team for a match. On the "Ringers" Groups, Team Organisers or Team Members can post that they need a player or player(s). Links to the Facebook Ringers Groups are emailed to current registered team members.

(A) Players are not permitted to play more than 1 Division lower than the highest Division that they regularly play in. For Example: A player registered and playing in a Division 1 Team must not ring for a Division 3 Team

(B) There is an additional restriction on Division 3 players, they are no longer permitted to ring for Division 4 and 5

(C) If a player is not registered to a team, then their ability would be the deciding factor, and they should contact Netball Fun League click here and ask what divisions they are permitted to play in before their first match. Please see table below for guidance

(D) If a player has played or is playing in an England Netball County League, the entry level at Netball Fun League is Division 3. They do need approval from Netball Fun League for the appropriate division for their standard BEFORE they play. Please see table below for guidance

– If a team uses “ringers” incorrectly then they will be deducted 5 points from their league table,  and the team they were playing against for that fixture will be awarded 5 points.  If a team  continue to field an illegal ringer in subsequent matches, then  we will issue a fine of £30 to that team

Where can YOU play/ring?


    On clicking the button below you will be taken to our main Individual Registration page. Here, please fill in all the required information. Tell us your preferred netball positions, skill level and the day / venue you wish to play at. Your registration will then be processed (please allow a few days) and you will be contacted by someone at Netball Fun League with all the details.

    Being Part of a Team

    Once you join a team, the Team Organiser will add your email address and contact details to the teams’ online profile. Please refer to the “Registration Process Guide – Part 2” on previous page. If you join as a permanent member of a team you will then be bound by the normal stipulations of a Netball Fun League Team playing in one of our social netball leagues.

    Be a Ringer

    From time to time teams may struggle for players, sickness, unavailability etc. To assist with this Netball Fun League has dedicated “Ringers Groups” where teams can post an appeal for a player/which position/how much/venue etc. If you are playing for a team you can request to join our “Ringers Group” check out the “Finding Players” link in “Members / Support” links in the main website navigation.


    1. Committing to the Whole Season

    Registering a team and joining a Netball Fun League involves committing to the whole season. If you are unable to complete the season for whatever reason, you are still liable for the match fees until a replacement team is found.

    2. Conceding Matches

    If a team cannot find enough players for a particular match and have to concede, then they will be charged the match fees of £26.95 and the game is conceded 15 – 0. If a conceding team gives less than 24 hours’ notice, they will charged the oppositions match fees in addition to their own match fees. A team may only concede one match in any one season at Netball Fun League, and will incur a £30 fine if they concede more than one in a season. Don’t worry, we have some great ways to find substitute players if need be.

    3. Cup Final Night

    At the end of every season the final fixture is a Netball Fun League Cup Final Night. As a registered team, you are committed to attending and taking part in this. The Cup Final Night is like a mini-tournament in which all teams in your division play against each other for ‘The Cup’. It is also the time when League Winners, Runners Up and Player of the Season awards are given out. Read all about Cup Final nights here
