The International Netball Federation (INF) has released an updated set of Match Protocols to accompany the new 2018 edition of the Rules Book.
The Match protocols are written to provide a detailed account of what responsibilities umpires have both before, during and after a match. In addition, they also provide further guidance on a number of rules.
When thinking about rules questions and attempting to understand scenarios it is vital that Umpires have a copy of the Rules Book and the INF Match Protocols.
Please note that England Netball requested and was granted a special dispensation to incorporate the INF Match Protocols into the Rules Book.
