Netball is a similar game like basketball but players do not dribble the ball, instead, they pass the ball to one another. This sport is predominantly played by women.
The objective of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. Goals can be scored by a team member positioned in the attack shooting circle and shoots the ball through the goal ring. The team with the most goals scored wins.
