One of the sponsors of the competi- tion is the All Australia Netball Associa- tion. Netball is one of the fastest growing sports in the world today, lt is the third biggest participator sport in Australia with 300,000 registered netball players - all of them women. Netball is the only all-female sport played in Australia.

Introduced as women's basketball at the beginning of the century, the game was immediately popular with Australian women. But the long skirts and billowing

sleeves that were fashionable at the time

restricted their movements, so they changed the rules and divided the court into sections to minimize the need for

long passes and to eliminate dribbling.

Netball is basically a modified version of men's basketball. The name was changed to netball in 1970 and with the change of name came an unpre- cedented surge of interest in the game - since 1970 the number of registered players has almost doubled.

Australia has a magnificent record in international netball competition, win- ning the first world tournament in England in 1963. Two of the three world tournaments played since have been won by Australia.
