Please refer to the results page for the Provisional Results and Standings after Round 6.
Weather forecasts for this weekend is a bit unsettled so please watch our Facebook page for any updates regarding games etc.
It has been unfortunate that we have had a number of incidents of unacceptable behaviour in and around the courts from both players, spectators and some bench officials reported to us by team members and umpires over the last couple of weeks. Everyone needs to stop drinking the ‘agro water’ and remember that a visit to netball on Saturdays should be a pleasant experience, a time to catch up with friends, relieve the stress of the week and have some fun. We are not playing for the “World Cup”, for many of the players their participation is just for exercise and fun.
However, being serious about what has happened, I must remind you and ask you remind your teams and all parties associated with those teams, that there are Codes of Behaviour in place. Everyone signing up should have made themselves aware of the Codes and ticked the box that they agree to abide by the rules that govern this competition, which includes agreeing to the Codes of Conduct. I have attached the most relevant ones for everyone to review.
Please note, breaches of the Codes have serious implications from being suspended from play – if a player is sent off for any reason (including bad language), to being asked to leave the playing area, or being barred from coming altogether for spectators that may exhibit bad, unacceptable sideline behaviour. Please note, bench officials can also be asked by the umpire to refrain from derogatory comments and teams can be penalised. There are a whole swathe of consequence, so PLEASE review the Codes and just STOP and THINK before saying or doing anything that you might regret. We just want everyone to enjoy coming to netball, watch the game and let the players just have some fun – really the result is just second place and there is always next week.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
