On behalf of North Durham County Netball Association, I wanted to drop a line to say how delighted we are at England Netball’s recent announcement that the return to netball can now progress to stage 4.
It has been 6 months since we saw most of our teams, clubs, coaches, umpires and volunteers take part in netball and it’s been too long!
We know how eager everyone is to return to court following this latest development.
England Netball have invested a great deal in ensuring that all those involved in netball have an enjoyable and safe return to our sport and I, along with other County Chairs, have been in touch with them throughout the pandemic. The safety of everyone involved in netball has been, and will continue to be, the top priority.
NDCNA will therefore be following the EN guidance in every respect and doing all we can to ensure the return to netball in North Durham is a success.
We are currently working on a plan regarding how netball at all levels will look for next few months and will share this with you when details are finalised.
I know that you will all be as supportive as ever and be ready to work together to get netball back up and running in the County. I’m sure you’re already digesting the guidance and new rules and thinking about it in the context of your clubs and teams.
I’d encourage everyone to be fully familiar with the adapted game and Covid safety guidelines and to keep up to date with the information coming from England Netball.
We will support all our members as much as we can and will be very happy to help secure answers and solutions to the questions and concerns I know we will all have in the coming weeks .
The committee and I are massively looking forward to seeing and playing netball with you all soon and once the plan mentioned above is drafted, we will be in touch again.
