  • Never argue with the Umpire.
  • Not verbally or physically threaten or abuse any Umpire, player or official.
  • Not dispute the Umpires decision nor react in a threatening or disapproving manner.
  • Players when given out, leave the field immediately and not indulge in any unacceptable behaviour.
  • Not behave in any manner, which may bring the Club into disrepute.Players are encouraged to play in a positive and sportsmanlike manner at all times. This should include recognition of good play on the part of the opposition and extending thanks to the umpire and opposing teams after the match.
