2020 Events

Cancellation of the WYC Qualifiers

  • Sadly but understandably the  Netball World Youth Cup 2021 qualifying event due to be held in Glasgow between October  9th-11th 2020 has been cancelled. The Netball Europe Management Board would like to thank Netball Scotland who were to have been the hosts for this event.
  • The other qualifiers due to be held in Africa, Americas and Oceania by October 2020 have also been cancelled and the INF Board has decided to use INF World Rankings to determine the qualifiers for these regions.
  • The INF World Rankings will be published in May to reflect all matches played before international events were cancelled as a result of the pandemic. The INF Board is consulting with its Members regarding the handling of World Rankings during the return to international play.
