CAN WE REMIND TEAMS, THE SCHOOL HAS A NO DOGS POLICY & IS A SMOKE FREE SITE – PLEASE NOTE. NO PARKING ON THE ACCESS ROAD TO THE COURTS, USE CAR PARKS PROVIDED.
On the weekend that many of the lockdown restrictions were lifted we hope that you are all doing well and at least making some progress back to a new normal. Getting back to netball however seems some way off. We, the Committee, are continuing to monitor the advice coming from England Netball about a restart and are looking to plan for a return as soon as is safe to do so. Many of you responded to our call for information a few weeks ago. The majority of teams do want to get back to playing as soon as possible although a number of individuals are rightly anxious and do want clarification that returning to play is as safe as it can be.
Please see the latest information from England Netball here https://www.englandnetball.co.uk/about/covid-19-support/latest-response-to-government-guidance/
England Netball has outlined a roadmap for a safe return. As they are only at stage two, MNL does not believe we can offer any safe organised netball at the current time. Individual teams will obviously need to undertake their own risk assessments as to whether they feel they can train in groups of six making sure that you follow the requirements. We are in contact with Rainham Girls School who will require new CoVID 19 risk assessments which we will begin to develop.
We do believe there will be significant additional requirements necessary for the restart and so are looking for new Committee members. We have been meeting remotely and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future If you think you can spare some time to help us reset the netball competition for adult and junior league then please do get in touch either via your divisional rep or via the contact form on the website.
There has been much happening in the last few months and none more important than #blacklivesmatter. Please read the England Netball statement and be assured that MNL operates an inclusive space to play, coach and umpire netball where racism and discrimination will not be tolerated in any form. https://www.englandnetball.co.uk/tag/black-lives-matter/
And finally, CoVID 19 is still with us so please do look after yourselves and stay safe.
All conceded games fees have now been paid. Any refunds due have now been moved to a credit on your “account”. Thanks everyone.
DATES FOR YOUR DIARY: TBA
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.
