- From England Netball
On Monday 12th October 2020 when the Government announced the new three-tier system (local COVID-19 Alert Levels) of restrictions, it affected netball organisations across the country in a variety of ways. We are grateful for your patience and resilience in navigating what these local implications mean for you.
After Stage 4b of the Return to Play roadmap was unlocked, it genuinely felt like we were getting back to normal with competition restarting and seeing many happy and smiling faces returning to courts. We have worked as quickly as we can, with other sports and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), to understand and provide clarity on the implications of this week’s announcement on community netball.
Read what this means for netball by clicking the button below.
The below table also provides a simple snapshot of what can and cannot take place across the tiers.
For areas of high (tier 2) and very high (tier 3) risk, we are seeking clarity on whether multiple bubbles of 6 from one household or support bubble can convene on one indoor court, providing social distancing restrictions are maintained between groups.
We will update you as soon as we have further information but netball organisations in the affected area should refrain from convening multiple groups indoors until clarification is provided.
We also wanted to remind you that our team of virtual coaches are still providing sessions as part of our Virtual Netball Club (VNC) to ensure that netballers that are not on court yet can still access netball training. Please let your members know that this exclusive platform is available to them.
