World Netball (WN), in collaboration with NETFIT NZ, have this week launched a social media campaign to promote the Rules of Netball 2024 Edition, with the new rules now being followed in all international matches, as of the 1st January 2024.
This comes after WN launched the Rules of Netball 2024 Edition in December 2023, alongside educational videos, and PDFs, with the aim to encourage all the Netball Family, not just the umpires, to use the new simplified rules book.
The educational resources and the new rules book can be found on the WN website.
WN and NETFIT NZ will be sharing infographics and videos across social media throughout January, explaining all the rule modifications including allowing teams to make tactical changes immediately after a goal is scored, changes to the short pass rule and the removal of the toss up.
While the rules came into effect on the 1st January 2024 for all international competition, Member countries may plan their domestic competition implementation date up to 1st September 2024.
Visit the Rules of Netball page on WN’s website now for more information.
