Netball is an exciting, fast and skillful game of fair contest. It is a game in which two teams of seven players each strive to keep or gain possession of the ball. Players have specified areas in which they can move (see below). Through running, jumping, throwing and catching, the team with the ball attempts to move it into the goal circle from where a goal may be scored, while the opposing team uses defensive movements and strategies to prevent this and to gain possession. Play restarts after each goal with teams having alternate possession. The team with the greater number of goals is the winner of the match.
