Become an Umpire

Become an Umpire

We are always on the lookout for Umpires to join our ever growing team. If you are interested in umpiring, the chances are, wherever you live, we have a league or are looking to set a league up near you.

We pay a minimum of £10 per hour dependant on a number of factors which we negotiate individually with you. We have a deserved reputation for the strongest disciplinary structure of organised Netball. You will be strongly urged to discipline players at every opportunity should they not obey your instructions. You are encouraged to dismiss players for offences such as swearing in your direction or questioning your decisions. 

 Our umpires are always backed up by us and we never take the word of a player over and above the umpire. Furthermore, you have the facility to choose the fine or exclusion period for any player or team that has caused you any problem in a league. Once you have chosen that fine or exclusion, there is no right of appeal for that player or team unless you specifically agree to it. 

Unlike other league organisers, we do not tolerate rude, violent or abusive behaviour in any way from any player or team. We expect you to umpire at one of our leagues, enjoy the experience and look forward to it each week. You will receive regular contact from a designated office contact for your league, who will ring each week after the league to discuss any issues or thoughts you may have.
