Best Answer

the rules of Netball are:

u r not allowed 2 have the ball for more than 3 seconds

u cant run with the ball

you aren't allowed to block people unless you are 3 feet away from them

You cannot contact your player which affects the play

You can only shoot for goal within the goal circle

Only the Goal Shooter and Goal Attack are allowed to shoot for goal

You can catch the ball and land on your right/left foot , that is your grounded foot , you can keep that foot grounded but if you lift your foot up and put it back down you will be penalized for stepping.

you cant go out of your area

You cant catch the ball, drp it and retrieve it.

you cant take the ball out of anyones hand
