Netball is an exciting game for both players and spectators. It is an international game, played in approximately thirty countries.[Muir Louis, "Netball", Foreword (pg. 1), 1989]

Netball involves lots of sudden changes in direction, pivoting, and jumping, placing a lot of physical stress on joints. This movement causes many cases of acute, traumatic injuries. Injuries such as; ankle sprains, as well as chronic overuse injuries like Achilles tendentious. It is critical for a Netballer to practise pivoting smoothly on the ball and toe of the foot. Equally important is practising landing so that the impact is absorbed by the muscles in the thigh, rather than the knee.
