Best Answer

Obstruction is when you aren't standing 3 feet (1 meter) from an opposing player when your hands are up, and advantage obstruction means the umpire isn't stopping play, but warning you were obstructing.

If you stand within a meter of the person with the ball, marking them or with your hands up in the air.

What is the difference between contact and obstruction in netball?

Both are similar in the fact the person who contacts or obstructs is out of play and the opposing team gets a penalty pass. Netball is a non-contact sport, so contact means you are touching the player or the ball while the player has the ball. Obstruction means while defending a player with your arms up, you need to be 3 feet (0.9 metres) away from the player with a ball. If you get called for obstruction you aren't standing 0.9 metres.
