On September 1, 2016, the netball rule changes came into effect for netball games worldwide. Here’s a quick summary of rule changes that directly affect our gameplay:
- No whistle after goal
- Only 1 foot is required in the centre circle for the centre pass
- At the throw-in, the player’s foot must be within 6 inches of the side or back line
- The GS/GA may take the penalty shot before the defender is in their proper “out of play” position
- There is no more injury time
The remaining rules are directed more towards international games and are not summarized in this post. Visit the INF website for a complete copy of the new rules.
