Officiating Opportunities

With so much netball happening in the London and South East Region there is always a demand for umpires. Below are some of the opportunities that have been received by the Regional Office. If you are looking for something closer to home it is always worth approaching your local clubs as it is very rare that clubs have too many umpires! If you need help contacting local clubs your Netball Development Officer can help put you in contact.

Dear umpires

One of the early netball events of the London Youth Games 2018 will be the Year 7 competition (which is also part of the national School Games). 

We are looking for officials (C Award and above) to act as volunteer officials on the day. This used to be held at Crystal Palace Sports Centre but this year we are using the Redbridge Netball Centre (outside courts) on Tuesday 20 March from 9.15am until about 3pm. There are more courts than at Crystal Palace and somewhere warm if needed close by. The March weather can be unpredictable! 

The approx. 16 or so officials will not only be umpiring but we also ask that they mentor some young volunteers who are beginning their umpiring journey  and will be assisting on court. In prior years all the young people have attended an introduction to umpiring course and there is an adult supervisor who will work closely with you all.

The young athletes will be of varying abilities but I always enjoy seeing so much excitement and  enthusiasm for the competition and for netball. It is a great advert for our sport. 

If you would be interested in joining fellow umpires, coaches and netballers at the London Youth Games (part of the largest sporting event in Europe) please could you email me as soon as possible at   providing me with your EN membership number and identify whether you are a C, B or A award official.  

Volunteer expenses are £40 for the day – there should be some hot drinks available but please bring lunch  – and any umpiring friends.  

Helen Telfer will be my right hand woman on the day together with other volunteers from the LYG GamesForce and England Netball.  I hope to see you there.

Best wishes


Lindsay Sartori – volunteer LYG Netball Event director
