Netball

Netball is a ball sport played by two teams of seven players. Games are played on a rectangular court with raised goal rings at each end.

The object is to score goals from within a defined area, by throwing a ball into a ring attached to a 3.05 metres high post.

Players are assigned specific positions, which define their roles within the team and restrict their movement to certain areas of the court. During general play, a player with the ball can hold onto it for only three seconds before shooting for a goal or passing to another player.

The winning team is the one that scores the most goals. Netball games are 60 minutes long but variations have been developed to increase the game’s pace and appeal to a wider audience.

 

Currently, netball is played solely on a recreational basis at The Dome Swakopmund with no active leagues or tournaments.

Court bookings, however, are available to the public.
