ILEMBE Netball held a successful umpires workshop at KwaDukuza Town Hall this past weekend.
The Department of Sports and Recreation, KZN Netball and Netball South Africa played important roles in making sure that the workshop was successful.
Thirty one umpires from the iLembe District attended the course - six from Ndwedwe, five from Maphumulo, 13 from KDM and 10 from Mandeni and most of them were young females. According to Ivy Khumalo, president of Ilembe Netball, there is a shortage of black female umpires in the district.

“We also need to get umpires of colour and we need to put more effort in so as to meet EPG targets. It was also noted that equal opportunities are required in our rural areas where people struggled to get from one venue to another as there is no transport to get them to the local games. It is not going to happen in one day but it was noted for future plans.”

Nkululeko Khumalo, who is the director umpire in KZN, facilitated the workshop and was very informative.
The main goal for the course was to increase the number of umpires in the district and get updated knowledge that will assist them with their umpiring to perform better and participate at higher levels.
“The approach was ideal for our umpires. The feedback received from participants was that the workshop was very useful and Nkululeko’s approach served as motivation for continuing to umpire in the future,” said Khumalo.

Ilembe Netball placed on record their appreciation to the various stakeholders who made the event possible
