The health and safety of the Netball Family is our main priority and to avoid the spread of Coronavirus we are constantly planning and preparing for netball to return in its fullest form in the safest way possible.
We are aware that the COVID-19 outbreak and the Government’s guidance in line with this is constantly changing, however we will do all we can to keep everyone updated on how this effects netball in a timely fashion.
Following the most recent Government announcement on Saturday 31 October, we are deeply disappointed to confirm that community netball will be suspended until the national lockdown coming into place on Thursday 5 November is lifted. All community netball following the Return to Play roadmap is impacted including club activity, leagues, local pathway activity and all England Netball programmes including Back to Netball and Walking Netball. Activity operating as part of the elite sport framework is however permitted to continue.
We will continue to update the website and Care Package as we know more, communicate with COVID Officers and run forums to support netball organisations and COVID Officers, coaches and officials.
