No need for a backboard here. Centres, wings, defenders and goal shooters make up the court and are restricted to thirds depending on their position. When you’re in possession of the ball you must keep a grounded foot, and pass the ball within three seconds. Defenders must be three feet away before they defend the player in possession of the ball.
Each team has seven (7) players/team members on court at once. Netball teams must have a minimum of five (5) players to take the court for all divisions.
Open teams require seven players, either male or female. No restrictions apply on the male to female ratio. Each team must bring along a non-playing scorer.
Mixed teams are allowed a maximum of three (3) males on the court at once. There can only be one (1) male player in each third. All-female teams are permitted in a mixed Netball competition. Each team must bring along a non-playing scorer.
