Umpires are a necessity. Without an umpire there cannot be a game. They are the most important person on the court. Umpiring provides a great opportunity for our members to learn to be strong, forthright and make decisions. They are the boss and they get to make the decisions on fair and correct play.
At West Pymble Netball Club we are lucky to have an umpire convenor who is passionate about netball. Her name is Madi Unicomb and she will go out of her way to ensure anyone who wants to become an umpire will learn how to be the best umpire they can be. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
