    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. For more information on this please visit the “Members / Support” links in the main website navigation.

    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
