Indoor Netball

Suitable for the novice to competitive league player

Indoor Netball is a 6-a-side version, created from outdoor netball and basketball in mind. Played inside on one of our fully netted enclosed courts, the game is very sociable, fast-paced and FUN!

Indoor netball is a popular game that appeals to a wide range of people. Even if you’ve never played netball before, you will find this a fun game to learn with simple rules and it’s a great way to meet new people.

However if you play competitive outdoor netball or if you’re looking for a faster fun challenge, indoor netball is also the sport for you!

Quick overview of our Indoor Netball competition

Each Indoor Netball league last 16 or 17 weeks depending on the season and there are 3 leagues throughout the year (Summer, Winter and Autumn). Each league will begin with a grading period for 3-4 weeks followed by around 12 weeks of competition rounds. Your team will play at least one game per week during this period.

Every season is finished off with finals matches to find a winner for each grade.

Evening games run for 40 minutes (four quarters of 9 minutes) and lunchtime games are 30 minutes (3 x 9 min periods). The game is started by taking a toss-up at the halfway line between two centre players from opposing sides. The aim is to shoot the ball through the hoop at the ends of the court.

1 point is scored for shooting the ball into the hoop inside the half semi circle marked on the court, and 2 points for shooting outside of it. The use of the sideline nets to pass the ball around makes the game even more interesting. LUNCHTIME LEAGUE ONLY – Each team will select a bonus period in which their goals are doubled for that period only (Captains to advise umpire before the start of the game).
