Professional Netball: Rules and Positions
Netball takes its origins from an early version of women's basketball. It appeared for the first time in England at the end of the 19th century, when an attempt was made to adapt basketball's growing popularity to women's needs. Soon, in 1895, the first set of rules was developed at Madame Osterberg's Physical Training College in Hampstead, which later underwent slight changes. The game quickly favored Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.
Since then, the game's popularity has only increased, thanks to regular international championships. For successful netball betting, it is important to understand the roles of every member of the team:
- Goal Shooter (GS): a third of the attack and the opponent's goal area;
- Center (C): any place except goal areas;
- Wing Defense (WD): the central third and third part of the defense;
- Wing Attack (WA): a center third and attacking third, excluding the opponent's goal area;
- Goal Attack (GA): the center third of the court and the attacking third, including the opponent's goal court;
- Goal Defense (GD): center third and defense third (plus goal area);
- Goalkeeper (GK): a goal circle and defensive third.
Goal Shooter or Goal Attack must throw the ball through the hoop to get points. In doing so, a ball must completely cross both the line and the ring. Each goal brings 1 point to the team. As a rule, the match lasts 1 hour and is divided into four quarters of 15 minutes. After each quarter, there is a little break. At the same time, breaks after the second quarter are longer.
If you decide to bet on netball, you should also understand the scheme of players’ positions on the field.
Although netball and basketball look similar, they have many differences. This concerns the division of the field into 3 thirds, seven team members, the impossibility of dribbling, the lack of a backboard near the net, and the smaller ball size. Also, only 2 players can score a goal during netball matches, and physical contact is penalized.

Australia won again as part of the last tournament in 2023 in Cape Town.
