I love netball and I’m amazed that the English team broke records at the commonwealth by retrieving the gold medal!
I like to keep my knowledge open about netball so I will tell you some facts:
- Netball was first created in England in 1892
- Netball was first played at the Commonwealth Games in 1990 in Aukland.
- Netball goal post is 3.05 metres high.
- Netball is not a professional sport in England – most of the players have professional jobs or are students as well as training!
- Australia has won the World Championships in 1971, 1975, 1979, 1983, 1991, 1995,1999, 2007 and 2011.
