Player ratings have been implemented to enable players to know where they can ring and for Team Organisers to see the make-up of their team to ensure it meets the criteria for the league they are playing in. Netball Fun League reserve the right to have the final say on where a team can register for. This is to ensure our leagues remain as fair and competitive as possible.

” Our aim to to ensure as best as possible that our social netball leagues remain as fair and competitive as possible “

TEAM MAKE UP CRITERIA
Teams must NOT have more than 2 players rated HIGHER than the Division they are playing in

If a team has a player or would like to add a player who is rated 2 divisions higher than the division that the team play in, then they would need to seek approval from Netball Fun League via our Contact Us page click here

Correct Player Rating Balance

Team called Fast Flyers wants to play in a Division 3 League and is made up of two players Rated 2 and five players rated 3 or below

Incorrect Player Rating Balance

Team called Hoopstastix wants to play in a Division 3 League and is made up of three players Rated 2 and four players Rated 3 or below

RINGING
Players can ONLY RING in a Division equal to or above their personal Player Rating – NEVER LOWER 

Example:
• Sharon has a Player Rating of 2 – she can ring in Division 2 or higher (not lower)
• Joanne has a Player Rating of 4 – she can ring in Division 4 or higher (not lower)

Please Note:  If one of your teams higher rated players is unable to play for your team one week, you CANNOT use another higher rated player as a ringer – this would be breaking the ringers rule.

Example:
Lucy is registered to a division 3 team and has a rating of 2. Lucy is unable to play this week. You must replace Lucy with a player who is rated 3 or below. You are NOT permitted to replace Lucy with another player rated 2 or higher.

A player who does not have a rating is NOT permitted to play as a ringer. If they are planning to join a team, then they need to contact us by clicking here before their first match, so that we can arrange for them to be rated. We would need at least 24 hours notice for this to happen.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What Happens When a New Player Wants to Joins my Team?

If the player is already in the Netball Fun League system (i.e. created their personal profile) then their Player Rating will already be in place (if they were rated prior to March 2020) and will automatically transfer. The Team Organiser would need to make sure that this new player would fit with the TEAM MAKE UP CRITERIA for their division.

 

If the player is NEW to Netball Fun League (they must first create their personal profile by clicking here) then, once completed The Team Organiser will need to contact Netball Fun League via the Contact Us page (click here) to arrange a trial match to ascertain their rating and suitability for your team/division.

 

How are the Player Ratings Worked Out?
A players’ ability is judged upon different characteristics that span across all positions (Delivery of passes, spacial awareness, ability to work with others) as well as positional specific attributes such as shooting accuracy, defence of a shot. This takes into account any team member that plays a number of positions.

 

Can My Player Rating Change?
Yes of course it can. Over time players inevitably improve and we will constantly try to keep on top of ratings and adjust in accordance with progress. Likewise, should a player for any reason no longer be of a higher standard, we can adjust.

 

Who Can See My Player Rating?
Your individual player rating is visible to you when you log in to your Netball Fun League profile. In addition to this your Team Organiser can view your rating. The ratings are not meant to be a closely guarded secret. They are there to help you source the correct ringers for your team in matches where needed. No excuses.

 

Consequences of Infringements
As per our Terms & Conditions
 2.7  If a team fields an illegal ringer 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

Over the summer months, some of our netball leagues will be played outdoors. As we all know the English weather can be a little unpredictable and long hot summer nights for netball is one thing we cannot guarantee. However a spot of rain will not make us cancel a match! During winter months occasionally bad weather can also present problems for indoor venues/access etc. Should the weather cause problems here is how Netball Fun League communicate any match cancellations:

MATCH CANCELLATION PROCEDURE:

In the run up to match days and on match days themselves we monitor the weather at our venues very carefully via BBC, Accuweather and local radio, and are in contact with the venues themselves PLUS friends in the locality for weather updates. Should the decision be taken to cancel a whole evening of matches:

Team Organisers are sent an SMS Text message informing them of the cancellation (the number used will be 07398 956881) Please can Team Organisers add this number to their address book. The Team Organiser should then communicate with their teamPLUS they will be informed via their Facebook Messenger Group.

  • The same message will simultaneously be posted on the main Netball Fun League Facebook page + Ringers Groups and Team Organisers will be tagged (if they are in that group)
  • If the whole evenings matches are cancelled then these matches will be rescheduled at the end of the season where possible.
If the Umpires deem a change in the weather or any other situation warrants the cancellation of a match during play on the day then:
  • If more than half of the match has been played, then the score at the time of stoppage will be the final match result – full match fees and umpire fees apply.
  • If less than half of the match has been played, then that match will be rescheduled at the end of the season – teams do not have to pay umpire fees or match fees.

Netball Fun League will SMS Text Team Organisers and use the Facebook page informing about the cancellation for any remaining matches on the evening, and those matches will be aim to be rescheduled at the end of the season.
