The ball is given to the opposing team, the penalty is taken from the sense of the infringement
I play netball myself and I've had Had a a few penalty passes. They are a pass that is given to a player who has been contacted or obstructed by the opposing team.
When you obstruct in netball, you have to stand beside the player you obstructed and wait till they have taken the pass/shot :)
The opposite team will have a penalty pass, and you then have to stand next to the player who takes it.
Contact is an infringement that occurs when a player makes physical contact which interferes with the play of an opponent. However, not all contact is an infringement of the rules. Contact which is deemed not to have impeded the progress of a player will not be penalised.
when a player goes offside the opposing team is given a free pass
You could get a free pass in netball if someone steps, replays the ball, goes offside, the ball is thrown over a third etc. A penalty pass is given if a player contacts or obstructs an opposing player down the court. However if this happens in your goal circle you will be awarded a penalty pass or shot where you can choose to either pass the ball or take a shot
Netball is considered non contact - however it was recently rated the third highest contact sport. This is because as the player is penalised when pulled up for contacting, the contact is made more aggressive (the logic is "if you're going to do it you might as well do it properly").
When the netball player wants to
NO you cannot score from a free pass but you can shoot if it was a penalty pass or shot in the goal circle. A penalty pass or shot is given if a player contacts or obstructs a person in the circle.
The offending player is given an excessive time out penalty. The penalty carries 5 yards for either offense or defense.
In netball where can wing defence player go to?
