Introduction

    Welcome to the home page of the United States of America Netball Association, the only Governing body for netball in the United States which is recognized by (IFNA) The International Federation of Netball Associations and (AFNA), The American Federation of Netball Associations.

    Netball is considered the most popular women’s team sport in the world. Although invented in the United States in 1891, it is considered a “new” sport in its country of origin yet is a high profiled, prime-time TV sport in the United Kingdom, the Caribbean, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  It continues its rapid growth in the United States, Africa and Europe, as the strong lobby of Olympic inclusion builds.    Netballers around the world are campaigning to see that Netball gets included in the Olympics, as it should be. 



    Netball is not just a sport for many... it is a passion. For many women around the world it is empowering, a chance to be active and the opportunity to play a team sport. Worldwide, over 20 million people are playing netball. Many schools throughout the world have Netball as part of physical education curriculum teaching children important skills including ball work, communication and teamwork just to name a few.

    Netball is gaining momentum in the USA. Not too long ago the USA was ranked 46th in the world,  thanks to an outstanding effort by the USA team (and numerous volunteers and sponsors) at the World Championships in Jamaica, 2003 the USA was ranked 9th in the World. The USA hosted the Under 21 World Youth Championships in 2005 - quite a feature for the USA.

USANA Partners with Sport Court



The USA Netball Association is delighted to announce a 3-year sponsorship of its web site by Connors Sport Court. This renews the relationship first established between the two entities back in 2005 at the time of the World Youth Netball Championships where Sport Court supplied three Netball floors for use at the Championship Venue in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.                

Andrew Gettig, Vice- President, International Sales, Connors Sport Court stated “We are delighted to renew our relationship with the USA Netball Association. They have proved themselves to be a forward-looking association and have clearly identified that Sport Court playing surfaces add to the excitement, safety and visual appeal of Netball. USA Netball pioneered the use of the surface at the World Youth Netball Championships in 2005 and have clearly endorsed its suitability for play at all levels." 

Carole Hokrein, Tournament Director for World Youth 2005 and current USANA Executive Member states “USANA fully supports the use of Sport Court floors. Its portability lends itself ideally to the requirements of an up-and-coming sport in the USA. Add that to the permanent Sport Court flooring, and we have a surface suitable for every level of play. USA look forward to a lasting, and mutually rewarding, relationship with Connors Sport Court”.   

In conclusion SPORT COURT is an ideal permanent and portable surface for Netball. Sportcourt has proven itself to be a great multipurpose surface. The portable version can be laid in just a couple of hours and taken up in less than 15 minutes by a small group of individuals. USANA is delighted to endorse this sport flooring.
