'Over a Third' is what is called.

in netball, when the ball is thrown over a third and untouched by a player, the umpire should blow his or hers whistle and say 'over a third free pass......(the teams club name e.g manly or south side).' if the umpire doesn't and is meant to the game is just a 'play on'.
