Rules for Players Filling in

Competitive Scorecard Example

Each team must supply a responsible scorer for their match. Scorers should stand together near the centre of the court and jointly carry out the responsibility of scoring. Teams failing to supply a scorer or sign the scoresheet must accept, without challenge, the official scoresheet as submitted by the opposing team. 

Scorers should use a biro only on the scoresheet, preferably in blue or black – NO felt pens, gel pens or pencils. The person signing in the manager’s spot is responsible for the scorecard and registration card for that fixture week, confirming that both scoresheet and registration cards are correct. Example scorecard below.

The winning team’s manager is to collect the game scoresheet and both teams’ registration cards, place them back into the plastic sleeve provided and return them to the relevant black crate (at the control desk for Courts 1-9 or beside the First Aid tent on the Jackie O’Meara courts for Courts 10-37). DO NOT LEAVE SCORECARDS IN THE DPNA LETTERBOX.

The black clipboard is to be left in the centre circle of the court, unless the game was the last scheduled match for that court for the day. If so, the winning team must return the clipboard, scorecards and registration card to the DPNA Control Desk. The second named team on the scoresheet is to bring in the post pads.

Non-Competitive Scorecard Example

Scorers should use a biro only on the scoresheet, preferably in blue or black – NO felt pens, gel pens or pencils to be used. Players are not required to sign the scoresheet. Example scorecard below. 

The first named team’s manager is to collect the game scoresheet at the end of the game, place it back into the plastic sleeve provided and return it to the relevant black crate (at the control desk for Courts 1-9 or beside the First Aid tent on the Jackie O’Meara courts for Courts 10-37). DO NOT LEAVE SCORECARDS IN THE DPNA LETTERBOX.

The black clipboard should remain at the appropriate court until the last round being played on that court that day (when no more score sheets remain in the clipbaord). The first team on the scorecard is responsible for returning the black clipboard and Scoresheets to DPNA Control Desk. The second named team is responsible for bringing in the post pads.


The game time should be evenly distributed amongst all players. Each player should experience all positions over the course of the season. Playing positions will be collated by DPNA over the season and teams not adhering to the positional rotation policy will be notified. Teams with 7 to 9 players should have each player play each position 6 – 8 quarters over the season. Teams with 10 to 12 players should have each player play each position 4 – 6 quarters over the season.

Competitive Registration Card Instructions

Registration cards can be found in plastic sleeves labelled with the team’s relevant game time, within the black clipboard on each court. The plastic sleeves with the scorecard and registration cards can only be collected at game breaks.

No person other than a player should sign the registration card in the place of that player. If a player is absent or does not take the court, the manager/scorer must write “DNP” (Did Not Play) in the appropriate column. The person signing in the manager’s spot on the scorecard is responsible for the scorecard and registration card for that fixture week, confirming that both scorecard and registration card are correct.

Penalty for incorrect or incomplete registration card = loss of game points by the offending team.

 An example Registration Card is included below.

Courts & Surrounds Safety

POST PADS

All netball posts must have a post pad attached before play can start. Post pads will be delivered to the courts before the first round on Saturday. Post pads should be returned following the last game on your court. It is the responsibility of the second named team on the scorecard to do this.

ANIMALS

DPNA does not permit any animals (apart from service animals) on or near any of the courts at any time. Animals present a tripping hazard for players and umpires. No animals (apart from service animals) are allowed within the enclosed area at any time. 

Bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc

DPNA does not permit bikes, roller blades, scooters, skateboards, or other similar items in the fenced compound. Bikes, roller blades, scooters, skateboards, and other similar items are not to be ridden between or near the outside courts. These items must be kept a safe distance from the courts to reduce injury risks.

UMBRELLAS

Umbrellas are not allowed between the courts or within 4 metres of the sideline. This is a player safety issue.

SMOKING

Smoking is banned in the enclosed complex, on the Jackie O’Meara courts and on the grass courts and surrounds. Smoking is banned within 10 meter of viewing and playing areas at organised under 18 sporting events. The ban applies during games and at training.

RUBBISH

All rubbish must be placed in the appropriate bin. DPNA has many regular bins throughout the complex.

DPNA have designated Recycling Bins around the grounds. We ask all members to please assist us with this recycling initiative by NOT placing regular rubbish, food scraps etc into these bins and following the signage on the bins to ensure that only eligible containers are placed into them. Cans should remain uncrushed.

COACHES’ BOXES

Coaches and reserve players are permitted to be within the coaching boxes on the side of the hard courts. NO EQUIPMENT IS TO BE IN THE COACHING BOX. Team equipment and drink bottles must be kept at the ends of the court or in a safe spectator zone.

SCORERS & SPECTATORS

For the safety of players and umpires, only scorers are permitted between the courts. Chairs cannot be placed around court 17 (except for the scorers). Spectators need to be aware of the danger they can cause to the players and umpires and position themselves accordingly, keeping player and umpire safety in mind.

Photos & Videos

Videography and/or filming of children is NOT permitted on the Downey Park Netball Association premises at any time. This includes video footage taken for personal use.

Photography is permitted; however, permission must be sought from the opposition manager and umpires before any photos are taken.

Please be aware that there are specific instances in law where consent will not be given to photograph members. Such instances generally relate to child custody matters, wards of state, restraining orders and witness protection. It is also possible that, from time-to-time, other circumstances may also preclude the taking of any image of an individual.
