We are all awaiting the end of these national lockdown restrictions on 2 December. The government has indicated that grassroots sport can resume in all 3 tiers subject to some mitigations if areas are in tier 3. Given the high Medway figures there is a risk we will be in tier 3 and so will send out more information after Thursday once the tiers are announced. We can assure you our risk assessments are in place and as we are running friendly matches we are ready to begin play again as soon as we have assessed the information. In the meantime stay safe and keep checking back on the website. MNL

LEAGUE UPDATE – 10/10/2020 – Winter Season to start on 27th October, 2020 Early 7.15 – Late 8.20 Start Tuesday & Wednesday nights


Senior games will return on Tuesday 27 October and Juniors on Saturday 31 October. All games will be played as friendlies. All umpires should have received information from Michelle Ray. If anyone has any questions please contact a member of the Committee or your divisional rep.

Track and Trace is mandatory for the League so please do follow the procedures
at the courts at Rainham Girls. The first few weeks are important as we see how the the preparations we have in place play out.

Further information will be sent out in the next week.

Please do not attend the netball centre should you be experiencing any CoVID 19 symptoms or if requested to self isolate.  Good luck everyone and stay safe

I hope you will have seen that England Netball has today given the green light for the restart of netball at grass roots level, subject to significant precautions being put in place.  This is good news and the Committee – both junior and adult branches – have been planning for this day and we now need to get our plan signed off with Rainham Girls school and EN.  We will begin that work this weekend when, subject to getting agreement from the school, we will visit the courts and try and execute our plan. As soon as we have a viable plan we will communicate with you. Please go to englandnetball.co.uk to read the latest update.

The main points are

·       Every league and club is required to have a CoVID 19 officer.  For the league, this will be our President Chris Olivares who has already begin the risk assessmnets in partnership with Rainham Girls School

·       Netball training will be allowed for groups of up to 30 per court subject to appropriate risk assessments being in place

·       Leagues can return from 26 September subject to conditions and of course if there are no local lockdowns or further government restrictions.

·       There are a number of modifications – including:

o   4ft spacing at start of play – so for example, the WD needs to be 4ft away from WA at start of play

o   3ft distance for marking has been extended to 4 ft

o   If you aren’t involved in active play you must keep 4ft away from other players

All of these modifications will be explained in the coming weeks. For now we need to know:

·       Does your team want to play?

·       Do you as an individual want to play? So maybe other team members are still not comfortable about playing but some individuals are.  Let us know as we may be able to sort something out.

·       You are prepared to sign up to test and trace procedures

Please contact your divisional rep. If you don’t have a divisional rep but do want to play from September, please contact any member of the Committee or via the contact box on the website

Please do send in questions and we will collate them and reply to everyone via the website.

To play in the league you will need to be a member of EN so do check that out on their website now.

That is all for the moment.  This is good news for netball. We are aware though that some people will have had different experiences during the lockdown period and may people we know remain anxious about social distancing and the safety of netball. So do ask us questions and seek advice.  We are here to help

Keep safe everyone and hope to see you all soon.

Best wishes

MNL Committee


All conceded games fees have now been paid. Any refunds due have now been moved to a credit on your “account”.  Thanks everyone. 


PLEASE BE REMINDED to not put registration cards and money in the Results Box.  Any Registration Cards posted will not be passed on by the Results sectary until our next committee meeting so you could run the risk of playing unregistered players.

If you are trying out a player and they have EN membership you cannot play them as a taster player, that category is restricted to non members only.

You would need to pay Medway registration and complete a new reg card too. If they wanted to change teams they would then be subject to transfer rules re the Constitution.
For the moment if you add new players proof of EN membership is required.

Don’t lose points on technicalities!


New Registration card available to download now from Documents *can be submitted in advance of playing to Div.Reps without players signature required but, MUST be signed by team secretary.  However, if registering on the night to play, should be completed and signed by both player and team secretary.

Note. All result cards must be received within seven days of the match, be fully legible and fully completed, include each player’s name in full and be signed by both umpires. The name of the team submitting the card must be clearly written on the front of the card. One point will be deducted from an offending team for non compliance.
