International Umpire Appointments

For a match to be ranked on the World Netball World Rankings umpires must be appointed by World Netball.

All umpires appointed to international ranking matches are independent of the teams playing in line with World Netball policy.

World Netball umpires are volunteers carrying out their role alongside work or study. World Netball would like to thank employers, families and friends for the great support they give to allow the umpires to represent World Netball.

An International Netball Umpire Award (INUA) runs for a four year period during which time umpires are expected to show ongoing improvement. Towards the end of the four year cycle International Umpire Awardee’s (IUA) go through a re-endorsement process to see if they are reappointed for a further four years.

The current International Umpire Awardee’s (IUA) are:
