Introduction To Netball With Melbourne Vixens

Today we discover netball, after having experienced Australian football for the first time yesterday. Netball is a sport for women whose rules are inspired by basketball, minus contacts. We attended a game of the ANZ Championship, the pre-eminent netball league in the world. In Melbourne, Melbourne Vixens plays its home games at Hisense Arena, close to the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This arena also recently hosted the 2012 UCI Track Cycling World Championships. We will not hide the fact we had preconceived negative ideas about the sport. But we realized that these ideas are not justified if netball has become the main female team sport in Australia and New Zealand! The game is tight. The atmosphere in the stands is electric. Our prejudice has quickly dissipated. We ended up cheering and being stressed as true Vixens fans! For the record the Melbourne Vixens won their match that day against the Queensland Firebirds in the last seconds after being held throughout the game.
