What is it?

Netball is a ball sport played between two teams of seven players and derived from early versions of basketball.

Games are played with raised rings at each end and each team attempts to score goals by passing a ball down the court and shooting it through the ring. Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court.
