Piranhas B – TEAM
On Saturday the 21th of March the Piranhas Played STM Sugar Babes, which i might add are a very good team. Our team played very well for our first game of the season although we didn’t win. The score was 23 – 1. Olivia shot our one and only goal and we were all very happy for her. For Gabi and Pia it was their first Netball Game they had ever played and were quit good at it, well done girls.Their was no major injuries but i fell and grazed my knee but now i am fine. I also think the team could improve the passes and footwork. Great effort was put in and we had a lot of fun.
Netball today is an international sport and is played by two teams of seven players. The Game is based on throwing and catching. The object is to score goals from within a defined area, by throwing a ball into a ring attached to a 3.05 metres (10 feet) high post.
Today the game is the most popular women’s sport in Australia with an estimated one million players nation wide. Although traditionally identified as a sport for women, there is no reason why it cannot be played with mixed teams, and increasingly more boys and men are becoming involved. Even at TPS there are boys that play netball.
At an international level Australia is well respected by over 40 affiliate countries, having won nine of the 12 World Netball Championships held since 1963.
In 1997 the sport entered a new era with the introduction of the National Netball League (Commonwealth Bank Trophy). This competition came to a close in 2007 after 11 years and was replaced in 2008 with the Trans-Tasman competition the ANZ championship.
National Championships are conducted for 17/U, 19/U and 21/U age divisions and the Australian Netball League allows younger players to have regular competition, and the public the opportunity to see some of the world’s best netball on a regular basis.
