One of South Africa’s four international netball umpires, Theresa Prince from Despatch, on Tuesday left for the UK where she will officiate at the Netball Quad Series taking place at The Copperbox in London.

The four netball countries that will be participating are Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa. All these games will be broadcast live on SuperSport.

The second leg of the series will be at Ellis Park, Johannesburg, where she will officiate the two top countries in the world: Australia vs New Zealand. The other international netball umpire from South Africa also present at the Netball Quad Series is Marielouw van der Merwe.

Prince will be umpiring on Monday, January 22nd when England will play against Australia and then back in South Africa on January 28th, she will be umpiring the two top countries in the world.

“I am also proud to be one of the 13 best umpires in the world that will be participating in the prestige Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Queensland,” said Theresa Prince, who will be leaving for the Gold Coast on 30 March 2018.

The Commonwealth Games is considered as one of the pinnacles of a player’s career and therefore it is a huge honour to officiate at these high standards.

South Africa’s international netball umpires are

Marielouw van der Merwe, Janet Edeling, Elizna van den Berg and Theresa Prince, the only international netball umpire from the Eastern Cape.
