Welcome to Fast5 netball. This is NOT the same game as the traditional netball played with 7 players on the court and 12 players within that team. This game was developed in 2008 at the International level specifically to create a more visually interesting game to watch that also increased the ‘flow-of-the-ball’. Rules in 2008 were changed in 2013. While we are currently enquiring into the correct court layout with netball court hirers, we will expose you to the World Series Fast5 Netball in New Zealand in November 2014. Our Australian Fast5 team is called “The Flyers’ and have not yet reached higher than 3rd in the global ranking of the game. To date the countries that appear most successful are New Zealand and England

This game is structured very differently including:

  • 3 different areas to shoot for goals
  • 10 players in one team
  • 5 players on the court at any one time
  • Substituting players at any time without stopping the game
  • Each team selects a ‘Power Play’ quarter which doubles the teams points/goals value
  • Umpire calls are designed to NEVER stop the game unless players can’t avoid breaking the 2 major rules of Contact and Obstruction
  • No equal access to the centre pass
  • And much more...
