A penalty pass is different from a free pass in Netball because:

A free pass is awarded to the opposing team because the infringement made by the other team only affected one player (stepping, replay, breaking) BUT

A penalty pass is awarded to the opposing team because the infringement made by the other team affected two or more players (contact, obstruction)
