In December 2023 World Netball (WN) has launched the Rules of Netball 2024 Edition. The new rules will come into play for all international matches from the 1st January 2024.

This comes after the WN Rules Advisory Panel (RAP) completed an extensive 12 month Rules Review process, which ended at Congress 2023 in Cape Town with the Members approving the rules changes.

The rules changes focus specifically on player safety and game management along with clarification and streamlining of existing rules such as contact and advantage. The layout of the Rules has also been updated to simplify and encourage use by all of the Netball Family, not just umpires.
