Hall announced his retirement on 28 August 2007 because a hip injury ruled him out for the 2007 season.[1]

In 2008, Hall spent 12 months as an Australian Government sponsored volunteer in Papua New Guinea, on the Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development (AYAD) program, assisting in sports development in PNG.
