About the organisation

Netball Australia is the national governing body for netball in Australia. Our origins go all the way back to August 1927, with the formation of the All-Australian Women’s Basketball Association. We were there when netball began. Now we help shape where netball is going. These days, netball is the biggest team sport in Australia, played by over 1.2 million men, women and children all over the country. It’s also the number one participation sport for Australian girls. Netball Australia’s job is to foster that growth, to connect with local communities, protect the reputation of the game, and create a sense of belonging and empowerment for women, men and children from all backgrounds.

Netball Australia is committed to working alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to improve access to netball. We want to work with disability and community groups to get kids healthy and happy. Most of all we want to see netball thrive.
