Safety

FINGERNAILS & JEWELLERY

It is really important that players in Netball Fun League matches are aware of our rules regarding Fingernail Length and Jewellery so as to make sure that matches can START ON TIME and most importantly BE SAFE & FUN FOR ALL!

If you are a Team Organiser make sure ALL your team are aware and understand:

1. JEWELLERY

Players MUST REMOVE ALL JEWELLERY before the start of a match to avoid injury to you as a player and your opposition, this includes ear piercings / wristbands NOTE: If you are wearing a FitBit or other such fitness “wearable” this should be removed also or be covered up suitably with a sweatband. The ONLY EXCEPTION is a WEDDING BAND or MEDICAL BRACELETthese must be taped up

2. FINGERNAILS

Nails MUST BE KEPT SHORT to prevent injury to you as a player and your opposition. As a guideline NAILS SHOULD NOT BE SEEN FROM THE UNDERSIDE OF THE FINGER (see the image below). Acrylic and Gel nails are permitted as long as they adhere to the previous point and are rounded and NOT SHARP in any way! YOU CANNOT TAPE UP FINGERNAILS!

3. GLOVES

Netball Fun League do allow the wearing of gloves as long as there are no embellishments i.e. buckles, studs, textures that may cause harm. If an Umpire feels that the gloves are not suitable they will ask that player to leave the court.

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR NAILS ARE SAFE BEFORE YOU GET TO YOUR MATCH

NOTE: Every Kit Bag at your venue has a Nail Kit plus Ice Packs, Plasters and other Medical products in one of the side pockets

  • YOUR COMMITMENT AS A REGISTERED TEAM IN A LEAGUE

    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
