Some facts about Netball


Netball is a fast and skillful team sport that fosters team-spirit and trains agility, endurance and perseverance. Speed, strategy, team work and co-ordination are essential skills for netball. Teams may include up to 12 players but only 7 may take the court at any one time. A game consists of 4 x 10 minutes quarters with an interval of 3 minutes after the first and third quarters and a 5-minute half-time interval. The major aim of the game is to score as many goals as possible from within an area called the Goal Circle.
