To all Nottinghamshire Club Secretaries,
Below is a form for you to express interest in the Notts Netball Saturday and Sunday Winter Leagues played at NUSA. At the moment it is not clear when we shall be able to return to competition as it will depend on when England Netball can persuade the Government that it is safe for netball to return to group training involving a netball and marking!
However we are keen to begin arrangements for the Winter Leagues so that when the opportunity arises, we are ready. It is to be hoped that NUSA will be able to reopen the courts in September, though we don't know this yet, but there will doubtless be risk assessments to be carried out and arrangements to be made to allow some form of social distancing so things may not be straight forward. It is also not clear whether we shall be able to resume in September or have to wait until October or even January. Clearly there will be a gap of perhaps 6 weeks between being able to train at club level and being able to resume competition.
If you could fill in the form and return it to me that would be very useful. Clearly some clubs may be reluctant to return until they feel that the situation is safe but we need to have some idea of numbers so that we can be ready.
Keep fit and safe,
10th July 2020
