How to Play Netball
First played in England in 1895, netball has spread to more than 70 countries. Played predominantly by women, the sport is similar to basketball. Two teams of 7 players try to shoot a rubber or leather ball, measuring 27 to 28 inches (67 to 77 cm) in circumference, into the other team’s goal ring at either end of the court. The International Federation of Netball Associations is responsible for setting the rules.
