Prioritising player safety, World Netball has made several changes to the Rules of Netball following a comprehensive consultation process. World Netball launched the Rules of Netball 2024 Edition, along with free educational rules resources.

The 2024 Updates to the Rules of Netball will come into effect at the Dunedin Netball Centre for our Winter competition.

The rules changes focus specifically on player safety and game management along with clarification and streamlining of existing rules such as contact and advantage. The layout of the Rules has also been updated to simplify and encourage use by everyone in netball, not just umpires.

World Netball has created some helpful videos and resources explaining the updates. Both the explainer videos and PDF versions of the new rules are linked below
