The history of netball goes back to 1891 and Springfield, Massachusetts when a 30-year-old Canadian, James Naismith, was instructed to invent an indoor game for high-spirited young men at the School for Christian Workers.

Netball's popularity continued to grow, with the game being played in many British Commonwealth countries, although there were no standard rules at that time with both nine-a-side and five-a-side versions of the game.
It wasn't until Australia's tour of England in 1957 that discussions took place concerning standardising the rules of the sport and this led to representatives from England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and The West Indies meeting in Sri Lanka in 1960, to establish The International Federation of Women's Basketball and Netball.
After formal rules were established the maiden Netball World Championship was hosted in England in 1963.
Netball is the most popular women's sport in Australia and New Zealand and this is evidenced by the fact that these nations have dominated international netball for many years, winning every World Championship title between them since that inaugural tournament (won by Australia).
The ANZ Championship was launched in 2008, succeeding two national leagues - Australia's Commonwealth Bank Trophy (1997-2007) and New Zealand's National Bank Cup (1998-2007). The competition is a joint venture of Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand.
