Around the Academy:

The aim of the game

The winning formula for netball is simple - good team-work and the ability to score lots of goals!

The aim of the game is to rack up a bigger score than your opposition.

But although each team has seven players to help achieve this, only TWO players are allowed to try and score goals.

Each member of the team has their own job to do on the netball court.

And to make sure they do that job players are only allowed to go into certain zones on the court.

Don't panic - the rules are not as complicated as you think!

Follow the Academy's guide and you'll be a netball pro in no time.
