TuksNetball Fastnet Series all about having fun

Posted on July 23, 2010

Fastnet is a variation Netball featuring shortened games and goals with multiple points. The new format was announced by the International Federation of Netball Associations (IFNA) in 2008, and was primarily developed for a new International competition, the World Netball Series.

In 2008 IFNA released the details for a new, faster format of Netball which eventually became known as “Fastnet”. The new rules were ultimately designed to make games faster, more exciting and more television – friendly with the ultimate aim of raising the sports profile and attracting more spectators and greater sponsorhips. Fastnet features modified rules that are outlined below. Outside of these the standard Netball rules apply.

Here are some of the new modified rules that will be applied during a Fastnet match:

• Timing: Each quarter lasts 6 minutes;

• Substitutions: As in basketball, teams will be allowed to use rolling substitutions, with no stoppages in play per substitution and with unlimited substitutions per quarter;
• Tied Scores: Tied games are decided by penalty shoot – outs, similar as those in football.

The above mentioned rules are only some of the new modified rules for the Fastnet Series.

Under 17 netball teams of the following high schools  will participate in this tournament:

Monument, Afrikaans, Meisies Hoër, Woodhill College, HTS Witbank, Zwartkop,Montana, Steelcrest, Centurion, Oos-Moot, Cornerstone, Garsfontein, Ben Viljoen and Centurion Akademie.

Teams of the TuksNetball Club will also take part.

Time flies when you are having fun and that is exactly what this tournament is all about. Come join us at this exciting event! TuksNetball Club are looking forward to welcoming you at the Tuks Fastnet Netball Series 2010.
