A netball court is split into 3 parts, each one of these is called a third, the 3 thirds are the defending third, centre third and the shooting third.
The wing attack in netball is allowed in the centre third and the shooting third of their team only, they are not allowed in the goal circle
The Centre is allowed everywhere but the shooting circles. This is because the centres main job is to link the defence and attack.
The wing attack is only allowed in the centre third and in the goal third where they start. BUT NOT in the shooting semi-circle
the centre is allowed everywheer in the netball court besides the goal circles

The GA can go in the middle third and their teams shooting third. They are allowed in the shooting circle to shoot and can run out for the centre pass. They play against the oppositions GD (goal deffense) and it is one of the most important positions in netball.
Basically Wing Attack marks the other teams Wing Defence and Vice verse for the Wing Defence. If you're wondering where they are allowed on the netball court, imagine you are the wing attack. You are allowed in the centre third (same applies for wing defence) and you're attacking third (the way you are shooting). If you are playing wing defence you are not allowed in the attacking third, so you are defending the other teams goal. (The wings aren't allowed in the semicircles either).
