Gibraltar Netball

The Gibraltar Netball Association is very pleased to have 2 delegates attending the England Netball Umpires Master Class this week in Birmingham Genting Stadium. It is extremely important to keep up to date with all the rules and their application so we can continue with the progress already achieved here in Gibraltar.

The two umpires who will be attending are B award umpire Laura Pattison and C award umpire Louise McLoughlin. Louise is working towards her B award and she was awarded the “Most Prestigious Umpire Award “ for Gibraltar last season. Laura is a qualified assessor and umpire mentor in Gibraltar. This course will therefore be of great value to them both.


The course will consist of a presentation on Position, Timing & Vision and Game Management, and will be led by one of the top umpires in the world, Gary Burgess. The course includes assess to watch the England Roses v Malawi final test series match, where all these principles learnt at the theory session will be seen in practise.
