Netball is a team sport played across women's and mixed competitions. It is played on an indoor court and games are 4 x 15 min quarters. There is a requirement for each team to fulfill duty requirements as per the draw.
Teams will be required to register a minimum squad of 10 players to participate at the EUGs. For teams to avoid a forfeit fine they will be required to field 5 players at the start of their scheduled game time. Teams are able to have 3 players cross accredit from another sport at the EUGs.

Duties & Uniform
Australian University Sport (AUS) conducts its competitions under the official playing rules and regulations implemented by the national sporting organisation for that sport. However, AUS events are unique and hence there are often variations that are implemented.
Uniform and duty requirements are addressed in the relevent sport rules.
Netball Australia rules were updated in 2016. Matches will be played according to the revised rules, except where these differ from AUS sports rules; in which case the latter shall take precedence. A snapshot of these changes can be found here. For full details, go here.
