It didn't. Basketball has always been basketball, netball has always been netball. Netball developed from basketball in the 1890s.
Netball is played in thirds, basketball in half's. Netball is non-contact, while basketball is contact. Netball nets are similar to basketball nets but have no backboard are taller and smaller in diameter. Netball has seven players, basketball has five. Netball players have bibs and specific positions, basketball does not.
Both basketball and netball are played on the same court
I am guessing 'how did netball begin"... i play netball myself. it originated from basketball but they did not have backboards, just hoops. they changed a few rules and bibs
Netball actually originated from basketball
netball is harder
Netball was originally made from the game basketball and was named "netball" so that ladies could play a different style of basketball.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.
There is no backboard in netball, however there is one in basketball
The difference between basketball and netball is that in basketball you can take more than 2 steps and dribble up the court, but in netball the most amount of steps you can take is 2 and you are put in certain positions. Another difference is that netball is played in thirds and basketball in halves.
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.
Basketball is way, way better!
Basketball and Netball are usually played as an indoor sport, however yes they can also be played outside.
No it is lighter than a basketball.
Netball is a women's sport while basketball is a sport for men. Well whoever answered this question is obviously sexist. I am a woman and have played both netball and basketball. They are 2 entirely different sports.

A netball... round ball, like a small basketball
Basketball has a backboard for the ball to bounce off. Netball hoops just have a hoop no backboard. You have to be very acurate. Also in netball the diameter of the rings is 3 inches smaller.
Netball came from basketball so was originally called basketball but over the years the name has changed just like the rules!
