Netball is comparable to basketball, although there
are different rules, tools, and team numbers. There is no ball control; no ball running. The seven players have to pass a ball within 3 seconds; the ball & basket are slightly smaller in size with no backboard, and players are assigned with certain areas. Netball is played between two teams, and each contains a total of seven players—three middle players, two attackers, and two defenders, each of whom is limited to certain areas of the court. The ball has to be passed from hand to hand, from player to player, and no one can run with it.The game is divided into 4 periods of 15-minute or two 20-minute half periods.
