Auckland Netball competitions are venue-based competitions. All competition games are to be held at Auckland Netball (St Johns and Windmill Park venues), and requests for specific game times or deferred games will not be accepted. However, Auckland Netball reserve the right to alter game schedules where deemed necessary.

Games are 40 minutes in duration (4 x 10 minute quarters).

Umpiring Details

Umpires are provided for Premier 1 & 2 grades competition games only (not grading games) and the cost is built into the 2023 fees.

For all other grades, teams are responsible for umpiring their own games. As umpiring is the team’s responsibility, a team not supplying an umpire for their game will play short to enable one member of the team to umpire.
