Latest Roadmap Update
Get up to date on the latest England Netball rules in relation to COVID-19.
England Netball - COVID-19 latest
We have now moved to Step 4 of our community netball roadmap, shown here, following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions from the Government. Whilst this is a positive step, it is one that the entire netball community needs to take with care so that we can enjoy a full season of netball in 2021/22.
With the lifting of restrictions, the COVID-19 rule modifications no longer apply and the standard rules of netball can now be used. The standard version of rules for Bee Netball, Nets and Walking Netball can also be reverted to. To read the full England netball guidance click here.
Colchester League - Adult/Youth Latest
The Colchester Netball Adult League is due to start on Monday 13th September 2021, league fixtures have been published and can be found here.
The Gilberd School currently have building works going on which has reduced the amount of car park spaces available, because of this the league have made the decision that 12 minutes quarters will remain in place for the duration of the Winter League.
The Colchester Netball Youth League is due to start in November and fixtures will be published closer to this date.
Colchester League - Court's update
When putting together fixtures for Winter League 2021/22 we have been heavily restricted by the court availability, due to ongoing flood light issues.
This has resulted in the Committee having to reduce the amount of league fixtures to allow for games to be played on 5 courts rather than 10. The impact that this has on teams is, playing bi-weekly games rather than weekly.
