PGL Partnership

About PGL Partnership

We have an agreed partnership with PGL (school activity holiday provider) to deliver Netball weekend tournaments throughout the year. PGL have successfully been running these events across the South West & West Mids, and have agreed partnerships with specifically identified organisations delivering netball both in the UK and abroad. As a result of these partnerships we are now able to offer a number of exciting paid and voluntary opportunities for umpires.

The weekend typically involves a netball tournament for 11-16 yr olds (broken down by age groups) combined with outdoor activities and evening entertainment run by PGL staff and supported by teachers. The events attract approximately 400 girls per weekend.

The partnership will involve EN identifying and appointing the staff to run the netball element of the weekend. The venues are small in terms of courts and therefore the maximum staff requirement per weekend will be:

·         1 x tournament organiser (Minimum of B award with experience of tournament organisation and the ability to mentor less experienced umpires)

·         9 x umpires (minimum of beginner award or working towards C award)

These events will provide a great opportunity for developing umpires within your area to practice their skills whilst receiving support from a mentor, the events also provide an opportunity for mentors to further develop their own skills

The timescales are extremely tight and we appreciate your support with identifying suitable umpires who may be interesting in taking advantage of these opportunities.
