Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end. The object is to score goals from within a defined area, by throwing a ball into a ring attached to a high post. Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court. During general play, a player with the ball can hold onto it for only three seconds before shooting for a goal or passing to another player. The winning team is the one that scores the most goals. All Netta, Primary and Sub Junior Age competition netball games consist of 4 x 10 minutes quarters with a 2 minute break between each one. Netball is played by more than 20 million people in more than 80 countries worldwide.
Fees - $80
