netball

hello, we are the essex blades netball club


Netball is a non-contact ball sport played by two different teams of seven players. The aim of the game is to score as many goals as possible. Goals are scored by throwing the ball into the ring at each end of the court. All players have specific positions; Goal Keeper, Goal Defence, Wing Defence, Centre, Wing Attack, Goal Attack and Goal Shooter which restricts their movement on the court. You are not allowed to run with the ball, hold the ball for more than three seconds or contact any other player.
