Robust netball balls for training and competition
What is netball?
The netball game is a ball sport in which two teams of 5 players play against each other on a field. The goal of the game or the game idea is very similar to the netball game. The players try to throw a ball into the opposing basket as often as possible and to prevent the netball from hitting in their own basket. The players of the ball-carrying team or the attacking team try to transport the netball to the opposing team's basket circle in order to drop a basket there. A player is only allowed three steps with the ball before and after bouncing, which means that the way to the opposing basket usually includes several passes. After each basket throw there is a change of position. Netball is not only very similar to netball, but also to handball and netball. This sport is only widespread in Germany and is only played by women or girls in competitions or tournaments. There are also two netball game variants: indoor netball and field netball. When playing netball in the hall, the playing field usually measures 30 meters x 15 meters. When playing netball on the field (outdoor), which is almost no longer played today, the field measures 38 meters x 19 meters. In both halves of the field there is a basket space in the form of a circle or part circle. The netball stand with the netball basket is attached in the middle of the netroom. The stand has a height of 2.5 m for women and, unlike netball, has no board. The playing time is 2 x 20 minutes with a break of several minutes. The peculiarity of netball is that it is a largely disembodied game. This means that physical contact between the players or with a player is prohibited in the rules. The game operation is organized by the German Turner Bund (DTB) in different national associations (with a respective regional league) and in different age groups and there is a netball Bundesliga, as well as some youth teams with youth championships, where there is a master every year. There are also different game classes, as well as an indoor season and an outdoor season.
What does the netball ball look like?
A netball ball is round and filled with air. The ball has a circumference of 56 to 30 cm and has a weight of 400 to 500 g. A netball thus corresponds approximately to a handball in size 2 (men). The circumference of the ball in the netball game is much smaller than the approximately 173 cm circumference of the basket opening. For this reason, hitting the netball ball into the basket of the netball stand or throwing the basket is easier, which can make it more difficult for the opposing basket keeper to defend the netball.
