On Saturday 28th November at the IWSNA AGM it was with great pleasure that the President, Leanne Blackmore was able to award The Shirley Prideaux Award to Catherine Nealon and Anne Tait from Ashbury Netball Club.

"Aunty Shirl" was the epitome of a volunteer and this award is the highest accolade a volunteer can receive from IWSNA.

Both Catherine and Anne have for many years now given over and above to both the Ashbury Netball Club and Inner West Netball and this award couldn't be more appropriate for them.

Congratulations and thank you Catherine and Anne for all the time you spend at Cintra and behind the scenes supporting our members and Netball. Its very much appreciated.

IWSNA COURT PLAN

Uniforms

Submitted by ashbury on 5 December 2019 - 9:48am

All players are reminded that they must wear our registered uniform - green and white dress, black sports pants and predominately white socks.  If you have long hair, it must be tied back off your face.  Nails must be cut short and filed, no jewellery (rings, ear-rings, nose-rings or any piercings, bracelets) to be worn and should be left at home so that it doesn't get lost.   See below for further information on jewellery.

INTERNATIONAL RULES OF NETBALL - JEWELLERY

5.1.1  Players may not wear anything that could endanger themselves or other players, specifically:

(a) No adornment or jewellery may be worn other than a wedding ring which must be covered with tape

(b) A medical alert bracelet may be worn provided it is covered with tape

We are seeing more instances of players with ear-rings and nose-rings taped, which is a breach of the rules.  Players are saying they are unable to remove certain types of ear-rings or have just had their ears pierced.

All umpires are reminded that they need to check all players prior to the start of the game to ensure that players are not wearing any jewellery.

ALL  players and coaches need to be aware of this rule and that the only exceptions are the wedding ring and medi-alert bracelet.

Any player caught playing with jewellery will be asked to leave the court until such time as the item is removed.

Congratulations Catherine Nealon
