Fast Net

Fast Net is an exciting, fast-paced game that is a relatively new form of netball, introduced in 2008 through the World Netball Series. This form of the game includes a number of innovative rule changes that have been introduced to the traditional game, in order to challenge the fitness, technical ability and tactical awareness of teams. For coaches, it provides an opportunity to try different strategies to maximise the opportunities presented by the game.

Since its introduction further rule changes have been introduced at an International level resulting in a Fast5 variation which is now the format used in the World Netball Series. This version has only 5 positions on court and 3 different scoring zones. The Fast Net version however is still often the preference for local tournaments as this version is still fast and tactical but with more players on court it means more people can get involved!
