Share the Dignity Round - 6 August

Access to period products is a right, not a privilege. But 1 in 5 Australians have been unable to afford period products at some point in their life. That’s why WDNA are collecting period products to help those in need on Saturday 6th August, as part of @sharethedignityaustralia’s #DignityDrive. We accept all products in original packaging, including pads, tampons, maternity pads, period undies, menstrual cups and incontinence products. Branded collection boxes will be available at the clubhouse for all donations.

Rolling Substitutions in A Grade & A Reserve

In line with the rep competitions, Wests will be trialling Rolling Substitutions in the A Grade and A Reserve Competition.  Commencing this Saturday 19 June, and will be reviewed at the end of the season.  

See below the rules around using Rolling Subs:

  1. Teams are allowed to make substitutions during play and at stoppages and intervals.
  2. There will be no limit to the number of rolling substitutions a team can make, and multiple substitutions can be made at any one time.
  3. Players must observe the offside rules as they enter or exit the court and must not interfere with the umpire’s movements during the change.
  4. The substitute must tag hands with the player leaving the court before entering the field of play. This must take place at the end of the court on the grassed area.  
  5. If any infringement is made during a substitution, a free pass will be given where the ball is when the interference or offside entry / exit occurs.
  6. Bibs must be exactly the same so it suggested two sets be used.  If players have to change bibs this must be done with both players at the end of the court.

NO NETBALL UNTIL RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED
Qld Government announced this morning there would be no community sport for two weeks.  We know that our members "just want to play netball" and experience has taught us to plan for what we know now.  

With that in mind, we have set down fixtures for 28 August and 4 September, to finalise our season.  No finals will be played - just for the love of netball.  Fixtures will be updated soon.

Waratah Social Netball games will be postponed until 23 August.

Thank you to everyone for your support and a huge shout out to those in quarantine.  We appreciate your efforts in keeping everyone safe!
