Full Domestic Rules Guidance 2016.

This has been created to provide details of the permitted variances to the INF Rules for domestic Netball matches in England.

The guidance provided varies dependent on whether competitions are National, Regional, County or Local level.

This document is therefore primarily written for individuals who require greater detail on each rule and its domestic variations e.g. league/event organisers and umpires.

Domestic Guidance Videos

England Netball have produced the Domestic Guidance to help support the development of netball at all levels working within the boundaries of the International Netball Federation rules and match protocols.

To help bring these to life, England Netball have produced a selection of short videos. The videos are pitched at different levels of competition for example, suspending a player at national or at a regional level match is different to suspending a player at a local league level.

Check which video is the most appropriate for your level of competition. England Netball hopes you find these videos beneficial.
