Jewellery, hair & fingernails…
All items of jewellery must be removed if possible. Items of jewellery that cannot be removed may be worn so long as they are adequately padded so as not to create a danger for other players. The referee in conjunction with the referee supervisor shall be responsible for deciding if an item of jewellery has been adequately padded. If the padding is not considered adequate, the player may not take the court. The decision of the officials will be final.
The referees may inspect the fingernails of all players, male and female, prior to the commencement of each match.
Players with fingernails that are not closely cut must do any of the following before taking the court:
a) Cut and file their fingernails
b) Cover the nails with approved soft nail tape (e.g.Elastoplast),
c) Wear gloves approved by the referee
Hair and Hair Accessories:
In general, hair accessories are not to be worn. Hair accessories include but are not limited to any metal or hard plastic device for securing hair, beads and/or any other item designed for hair decoration. Long hair must be secured in a ponytail or other suitable arrangement that will stop the hair from contacting the eyes of other players. If the arranged hair obscures the number on the back of the playing shirt then the hair must be placed inside the collar of the shirt so that the number is not obscured.
