Welcome to England Netball Officiating

Netball is changing. Participation is growing, more clubs are developing and players are getting faster and stronger. High quality officiating at all levels is essential in helping us to be the number one sport for women and girls in England.

As the game progresses, the role of the umpire in helping to ensure matches are played safely and to the rules are needed at all levels of the game. That’s why at England Netball we recognise the need to provide officials with a portfolio of courses and workshops that are packed with expert knowledge, covering all areas of umpire and technical official’s development.

Our Officiating Pathway allows officials to plot their own learner journey through a range of qualifications, helping them to fulfil their officiating potential. So, for more information on these, please explore the officiating links below!

Netball is the number one team sport played by women and girls, 1.7 million children play in school and over 150,000 play weekly. It is an exciting time, the game continues to grow in popularity and England Netball are revolutionising its approach to training the people who make the game happen. Get involved in officiating and help us take netball to the next level.
