Netball is a fast, skillful
team game based on
running, jumping, throwing
and catching.

Netball is a global sport played in 113 countries by 20 Million Participants.

Two teams of seven players each strive to keep or gain possession of the ball. The team with the greater number of goals at the end of the game is the winner.

The seven team positions are:

Goal Shooter (GS), Goal Attack (GA), Wing Attack (WA), Centre (C), Wing Defence (WD), Goal Defence (GD) and Goal Keeper (GK).

Each player has a playing position determined by the areas on the court where they may move. The playing positions are shown by identification letters worn above the waist, on both the front and the back of the player.

A Competition Squad is made up of 12 Athletes  - seven on court and five reserves.

The Court is 30.5m long and 15.25m wide, which is divided into thirds. There is a centre circle with a diameter of 0.9m and two goal circles which are semi-circles measuring 4.9m in radius.
