Indoor netball

Post by FusTinG on Sun Nov 05, 2017 12:23 pm

Indoor netball is a variation of netball, played exclusively indoors, in which the playing court is surrounded on each side and overhead by a net. The net prevents the ball from leaving the court, reducing the number of playing stoppages. This gives indoor netball a faster pace than netball.

There are two main types of indoor netball, "6-a-side" and "7-a-side". Indoor netball has a larger focus towards mixed-gender matches than netball does, although ladies' games, and to a smaller extent men's games, are ever-present. While the sport does not have as large a following as netball does, its popularity is growing in countries such as England, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The sport is administered at an international level by the World Indoor Netball Association (WINA)[citation needed].

Overview

The rules of indoor netball are similar to that of netball, with two teams aiming to score as many goals as possible. An indoor netball game usually consists of four quarters of 10 minutes. There are two umpires one for each half of the court. The winning team is the one with the most points at the end of the match. In case of a tie in elimination games, two straight 5-minute overtimes are played; if still tied, whoever is up two points will win.
6-a-side

In this version the court is divided into halves rather than thirds, and there are six players per team rather than seven. The team is made up of two centre players, two attack players, and two defence players. The two attack players are located in one half and the two defence in the other with the centre players running the full court excluding the circles. Scoring is also different, with a successful shot inside the circle scoring 1 point and outside the circle scoring 2 points (much like 3-pointers in basketball). Because of the 2-point line this changes the game play significantly, with the attack players working to set up the centre players for the 2-point shot. Once a goal is scored, a defence player from the opposition team takes a throw-off from the top of their circle. This makes the game even faster as the ball doesn't have to be sent back to the centre third for a centre pass like 7-a-side.
7-a-side
This version is a lot like original netball, with the court in divided into thirds and with seven players similarly positioned. Only 1-point shots are possible, and only from inside the shooting circle.
