Netball
Written by Catherine Davis   

NetballNetball is an energetic team sport, the aim of which is to score goals by throwing a ball through a hoop.

The seven players in each netball team are given named positions according to the parts of the court in which they may move. Only goal shooters and goal attackers are allowed to score.

Netball players may not take more than one step with the ball, which can't be held for longer than three seconds. The only way to progress towards goal is to pass to a team mate. This makes for fast moving matches in which everyone is involved. The game of netball is divided into four fifteen minute quarters. Contact between netball players is not permitted and results in a penalty.

Netball involves running, jumping, throwing and catching. As such, it is an excellent form of aerobic exercise that works the cardiovascular system as well as developing strength and toning muscle.
