You have to stand aside and the other team gets the ball
when it is obstruction or contact
obstruction stepping contact
the three main rules in netball are; stepping, contact and obstruction
obstruction is when you are not 4 feet away from the person
you have to stand adjacent to the person you had obstructed with as they pass the ball to another player. they get a free pass and you stand next to them till they do that.
The penalties in netball are contact and obstruction, intimidation also comes under the category of these two penalties.
An obstruction in netball is when you stand with in 3ft of the player and you with your arms over the ball. So you would get pulled up for obstrustion and now you would have to stand beside the player you were defending!;D
When you obstruct in netball, you have to stand beside the player you obstructed and wait till they have taken the pass/shot :)
