2024 New Rule Changes 

On 12 December (NZT), World Netball released several changes to its rules which come into effect on 1 January 2024.

These changes have been made following a comprehensive consultation process. Periodically the World Netball Rules Advisory Panel (RAP) reviews the rules of netball to maintain the spectacle of the game, continuing the sport’s evolution and positive outcomes for all involved.

World Netball will be developing educational resources including an updated rules app available for all to access at https://netball.sport/game/the-rules-of-netball

Netball New Zealand will work closely with those in both the high performance and community space within all Centres around New Zealand to ensure the changes are understood and applied from the start of 2024 season.
