Netball is a ball sport played between teams with the objective to score points by shooting the ball through a raised hoop at either end of the court. Played between teams of seven; each player has an assigned position which limits where they can move on the court.
A popular variation to the game is Indoor Netball which is usually played between smaller teams of five and with fewer rules on players positions. Indoor Netball is usually a lot faster, social and is easier to pick up for the beginner player.
