Backing up from their Commonwealth Games call up, NSW umpires Rachael Ayre, Sharon Kelly and Michelle Phippard have been selected to officiate at the Netball World Cup SYDNEY 2015 (NWC2015).
The International Netball Federation (INF) made the announcement last week, also naming the Umpire Appointment Panel, including Netball NSW Hall of Famer Maureen Boyle OAM, and the Jury of Appeal who will officiate the tournament alongside the umpires.
NWC2015 will run from August 7 to 16 in Sydney Olympic Park, with matches to be held at Allphones Arena and the new home of Netball NSW – Netball Central.
Tickets to the big event go on sale Wednesday 18 March with a number of pre-sale periods from that date with first access given to subscribers to the NWC2015 newsletter, ANZ Championship team Members (ie 2015 NSW Swifts Members) and MyNetball Members (ie registered members of Netball NSW). Read the full details in the NWC2015 Ticketing Guide.
Congratulations Rachael, Sharon, Michelle and Maureen!
