Have you ever considered picking up a whistle and becoming an umpire?
Umpiring netball is very rewarding and is fast growing as an individual sport in its own right. It requires fitness, good analytical skills and of course a passion for the sport of Netball.
It is part of Papakura Netball Centre’s mission to provide a quality competition for all. This includes setting the qualifications required per grade and being at the required fitness level to be able to have good position, vision, and timing. We all expect and deserve to have a well-managed game.
