Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Its development, derived from early versions of basketball, began in England in the 1890s.

Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end. Each team attempts to score goals by passing a ball down the court and shooting it through its goal ring.

Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court. Netball is most popular in Commonwealth Nations, specifically in schools, and is predominantly played by women. According to the INF, netball is played by more than 20 million people in more than 80 countries.
