Netball

What is Netball?

The game is played on a hard court with scoring rings at both ends, where players score by netting the netball.

There are seven players on each team. All have named positions on the court such as wing defence or centre. The players are restricted to specific areas according to their position. Players cannot travel with the ball, making netball a game of fast passing with the object being to outscore your opponent by shooting more balls through the goal ring.
