All team members are required to wear the same coloured (matching) tops.  Appropriate exercise attire and non marking shoes must be worn. No Denim, cord pants, bare feet, thongs, open-toed shoes and jewellery of any kind (other than medical jewellery) is permitted. You will not be permitted to participate in social sport unless properly attired.

Netball - Teams must provide their own bibs, however these can be hired from the Service Desk at a cost. Each member of the team must be wearing the same colour top. A 1 point penalty will apply for each player not in the same colour.

Indoor Soccer - Teams are required to wear shirts of the same colour with numbers displayed on the back of the shirt. It is strongly recommended that all players wear shin pads.

Basketball - Teams are required to wear matching singlets with only the following numbers for ALL players: 4-15, 20-25, 30-35, 40-45, 50-55 - these are the legal basketball numbers and must be displayed on both the front and back of the singlet.  T-shirts or compression tops (such as TXU, Skins etc) that are the same colour as the singlet may be worn underneath however no polo shirts or t-shirts with buttons may be worn.

All players must wear matching shorts with no pockets - tracksuit pants are not allowed. Compression garments may be worn under shorts.

We have sets of numbered singlets for teams which can be hired out for games at $10 per team set per week as an alternative to having to buy your own uniforms. Black shorts without pockets will also be available to purchase for $20 per pair.
