Netball catalogue 300x200At a physical training college in England, the rules of women's basketball were modified over several years to form an entirely new sport: "net ball".

In some countries, the sport still retained the name "women's (outdoor) basketball" upon its arrival. "Women's basketball" arrived in Australia reportedly as early as 1897.

South Africa was involved with the international netball community early in the sport's history, taking part in the 1960 meeting of Commonwealth.
