Abstract

The Influence of Playing Position on the Biomechanical Demands of Netball Match-Play

Netball is an intermittent and multi-directional team sport, played on a relatively small court. Rules restrict movement of certain positions within the court, and as such each of the seven positions has a unique physical, technical and tactical remit. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of playing position on mechanical loading during netball match-play.
