Townsville Indoor Netball
“Indoor netball is fast paced and so much fun. A great way to get fit and socialise with friends.”
What is Indoor Netball?
Indoor Netball is a variation of netball traditionally played by women. Indoor netball has rapidly expanded to include males and has become the most popular mixed sports in Australia. Due to the fast paced, hi-energy, and exciting nature of the game, it is suitable for all ages and experience levels.
The rules of Indoor Netball are similar to traditional outdoor netball rules. The basic rules are:
- 7 players per team. Each player has a designated position and zone of the court they are allowed to move within (mixed teams are allowed a min of 2 or a max of 3 men);
- Extra players are allowed. Substitutions can only be made between quarters or if an injury occurs;
- Each match consists of 4 x 10 minute quarters (players may change positions during any quarter-time break);
- Netball is a non-contact sport and defenders must remain 1 meter from the ball-carrier at all times to avoid obstruction penalties;
- The court is completely surrounded by netting. There is no ‘out-of-bounds’, adding another dimension and tactics not available to traditional netball; and
- Teams earn bonus points on the ladder for each skin they win within a single game.
