Thank you all for being so patient with us the past couple of months. I know it has been a tough time for all, and something that no one could have predicted! I think its safe to say that we will all be willing and waiting for the end of this time to come, and with this in mind, looking forward to the next season.
As a league, we have come up with a few potential plans for the coming year:
We continue as normal, with all teams about to take part (school and ladies) and we kick start the year with Round 1 of the Dubai Netball League, enabling us to have 1 league over the year. This league will consist of 4 divisions of 7 with round 1 games taking place on 16 Sept, 23rd Sept, 30th Sept, 7th Oct, 14th Oct & 28th Oct, and round 2 commencing on 4th Nov.
We go ahead with 2 leagues for the year. League 1, which will take place from September 16th, will consist of teams of ladies, with everyone over the age of 16/18 able to take part (rule dependent). This league will consist of 3 divisions of 9, with games taking place on 16 Sept, 23rd Sept, 30th Sept, 7th Oct, 14th Oct, 28th Oct, 4th Nov & 11 Nov, leaving us with an extra week before the end of November in case of rain or cancellation. This will only be the case if schools do not allow their teams to take part in outside leagues. League 2, starting from January 2020, will be unrelated, and will include school teams, taking the original format of 4 divisions of 7.
We go ahead with the one league through the year, but omit school teams from entering. All girls (any age) will be able to enter, but will have to register under a name unrelated to school. This league will consist of 4 divisions of 7 with round 1 games taking place on 16 Sept, 23rd Sept, 30th Sept, 7th Oct, 14th Oct & 28th Oct, and round 2 commencing on 4th Nov.

Deposit amount for existing teams, full year: 2750AED (5 x existing players)
Deposit amount for existing teams, Sept - Dec: 1500AED (5 x existing players)
