It's a bit like basketball, but when you have the ball you can't dribble/run, you have to stop and pass it. And the hoop has no backboard. And pretty much only chicks play it
It's a lot harder than basketball. Ang used to play it a lot on weekends so I'd go down to watch... I don't know what it is exactly, maybe its the competition or simply the sheer crankiness of some of the players, but they're just downright savage.
In basketball they'll give you a foul if you knock someone on their arse, in netball they only seem to give you a foul if you knock someone out cold with an uppercut. Some games they made them tape up their fingernails to avoid some vigourous raking with them over someone's face or eyeballs
