Netball is a very popular sport for girls across the UK so we thought we'd include a "learn to draw" tutorial for children to have fun with.
Netball dates back to the late 19th century and is played, mainly by women, all over the world, being particularly popular in schools. Each team has seven players, and each player is given a particular position which restricts where than can go on the court. Two members of the team are allowed to shoot goals into a hoop which is similar to a basketball hoop but lower, and without the back board. Netball is now a Summer Olympics sport.
