Game Today

According to IFNA reports, over 20 million people currently play netball in more than 70 countries, with just fewer than 60 national netball associations affiliated with the worldwide governing body. It is the most popular team sport for women in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, South Africa and Jamaica. Television coverage has increased the profile of the sport in countries with elite domestic competitions, but in many cases not to the extent of well-established male-dominated sports. Netball has also yet to reach the status of a fully professional sport in any country.
