About the event

World Netball has released the 2024 Rules of Netball, set to come into play from PSNA Winter Competition.

We invite all Member Clubs, Team Coaches, Umpires and Players and interested members to join Alan Prentice Netball NSW National A Umpire to talk through how these changes are practically applied to community netball. 

The Rules of Netball 2024 Edition were launched by World Netball (WN) in December 2023. These updated rules will be in effect for all international matches starting from January 1, 2024

The changes focus on player safety, game management, and clarification and streamlining of existing rules, including aspects like contact and advantage12.

Here are some of the major changes in the 2024 rules:

  1. Tactical Changes: The rules now address tactical aspects such as goal after the whistle, center pass checks, and toss-up removal.
  2. Player Safety: Emphasis has been placed on ensuring the safety of players during the game.
  3. Foul Play: Clear guidelines have been provided regarding foul play.
  4. Game Management: Improved management of the game flow and adherence to rules.
  5. Advantage: Rules related to advantage have been clarified.
  6. Contact: Specific rules regarding player contact have been streamlined.
  7. Playing the Ball: Guidelines for playing the ball have been refined.
  8. Throw-In: Rules for throw-ins have been updated.

The layout of the rules has also been simplified to encourage use by all members of the Netball Family, not just umpires. You can explore the full rule book in English here.
