Ashlee and Lizaras Netball project

The sport Netball was first invented in 1895. If you wondered why the sport is so similar to Basketball? The answer would have to be before the first game of netball was played, a few people were playing the sport basketball when they accidentally created a new game called “Netball”.

There is no explanation for why this game was created. It was just like a few other popular sports that was created by accident. Did you know the first game of netball was played at Madame Ostenburg's College, England.

Apparently a variety of boys and girls created the sport one lunch time when playing Basketball and then it turned into Netball. Through to inclusion the game is one of the must have sports in the commonwealth games.

If you have never played the game netball then don’t fear because we are hear to tell you. You must have 2 teams with at least 7 players on each side. You play on a rectangular court with raised hoops on each side.

The objective of the game is to see which team has the most goals at the end of the game. They do this by passing the ball down the court to their team members without breaking the rules. To see the rules of netball then keep tuned for a movie explainging the rules of Netball.
