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)

Penalty pass is where a member of the team the offense was against has a free pass and the offender must stand by their side. If it is in the D then they have the option of shooting. But obviously the member taking the penalty pass must be allowed in the area the offense was committed.
