Netball actually originated from basketball
Netball was originally made from the game basketball and was named "netball" so that ladies could play a different style of basketball.
Netball was invented in 1892 but was called Women's Basketball not Netball.
Netball can be traced back as far as, or even farther than, basketball. After basketball was invented in the 1890's, women began to want a similar sport to play. After many modifications to the rules of basketball, netball was born at a physical training college in England.
There is no backboard in netball, however there is one in basketball
Netball was created as a version of basketball for women. In 1892 Senda Berenson changed the rules of basketball to create netball. Netball became it's own sport in 1899 with specially designed nets.
In netball you cannot bouncethe ball whereas you can in basketball and in netball only certain players are allowed in specific thirds prior to which position they play, but in basketball the whole team is allowed anywhere.
