Netball is an extremely overlooked sport. The best team in the world is the Aussie Diamonds and second is the English Roses. It involves seven players from each team; GS shoots goals can only stay in the end third, GA also shoots but is allowed in the attacking third and the centre third, WA cannot shoot or go in the D but is allowed in the attacking third and centre third, C is allowed all over the court except the D and takes the first pass to start play, WD is allowed in the centre third and the defending third but cannot go in the D (one at each end) GD can go into the D in the defending third and the centre third, GK can go into the D but only allowed into the defending third. There are three thirds altogether and each team should have at least 3 subs in case of injury. Matches last 60 minutes and the game requires agility, good reactions and high fitness levels. Open to ages from approximately 6 years to 50 years. There are many rules in netball like you ant drop the ball (bounce the ball) or run with the ball or go offside and many more.
My teacher chose me for the netball team, I need to get my fitness up!

Contrary to the uninformed beliefs of Gumba Gumba, is a game that was invented in the United States by a New Orleans sports teacher named Clara Baer. She had been learned of a new game called basketball which had been invented in Massachusetts in 1891 by Canadian immigrant James Naismith, and wrote to him asking about the rules.

Baer misunderstood certain aspects of the court lines that Naismith had included in a sketch enclosed in his response, and thus netball - originally known as women's indoor basketball - became a game quite distinct from Naismith's game. The first official game of netball was played in 1895.

Basketball with all the fun parts taking out

1. You have specific places
2. You can't dribble with the ball
3. No backboard to shoot

But it's still a really fun sport in some other ways. Mainly played by girls.
Netballer - Hey I just came back from my netball game
Basketballer - Oh cool, how was it?
Netballer - I stepped a few times and obstructed but it was good overall
Basketballer - ...What the fuck does that mean?
