Can I wear earrings on court? What jewelry can be worn?

Unfortunately you are unable to wear earrings or any jewelry on court whilst playing netball. You can no longer tape your ears either due to Health and Safety regulations. If earrings are worn and get accidentally ripped out – it is on the umpire and the club, and legal action – whilst unlikely is a real possibility. You may tape your wedding band and medical bracelet if you are unable to take them off for the game.

Where can I obtain my team's draw from?

Ask your coach or manager, they will be happy to assist you. Otherwise you can look at your team draw by going to the GNA website into competitions or go to my http://my.netball.com.au/ to find the draw for your team.

Often it is best that club fees are paid on registration day at Davistown RSL. There is an ATM as we are a cash or cheque only facility on the day. You can also pay by online transfer. To obtain these details contain our club treasurer for the BSB details.

We do understand however, that paying the full amount on registration day is not always feasible. Players have until the commencement of the netball season to have paid their fees.
