Around the Academy:

England captain Olivia Murphy
This game will put you on the road to success!

If you want to start playing netball and really develop your skills, this could be just for you

High five netball is slightly different to the full seven-a-side game.

It's a great way to learn all the on-court positions and will give you a grasp of the physical and tactical skills required.

The game is played between two teams of five players, over a period of four six-minute quarters.

Teams can rotate their squads during a match, but if you're not playing, don't think you'll be allowed to take a break!

When a match is in progress, non-playing squad members take on the roles of time-keeper, scorer, umpire and centre pass marker.

This means they get to learn the game from every possible angle.

It's aimed specifically at the 9-11 age group and is a brilliant way for young players to hone their skills before taking on the full seven-a-side game.

So if you're looking to get into netball or just learn more about the game...

High five netball could be just what you're looking for!
