On Monday night I tried something new, netball!
There is a Brunei Social Netball Club here that play every Monday and everyone is welcome so I tagged along this week. I never even knew about netball until I came out here actually. It's kind of like basketball, but only very slightly.
Even though I was new, the rules weren't really explained to me, I had to "learn by playing"... Well, let's just say I got whistled at a lot!
You see, it's only slightly like basket ball, lots of the rules are different:
When you play in a certain position, you are only allowed to move in certain "zones" on the court. You are not allowed to score unless you are one of the two attack players. You can't move while you have the ball (i.e no dribbling), you can't throw the ball past a zone, you can't be closer than 3ft to another player etc etc.
It was a lot to take in in one game but I'm already looking forward to next time! At least I've got one thing down already - I have the proper height! :D
