After hearing Noeline Taurua on the segment with Cat Tuivaiti speak about the different Australian/New Zealand playing styles after coming to Sunshine Coast, and about to be immersed in 10 days of international world cup netball, I wondered if some of our contributors could point out some defining aspects of the different styles of netball played around the world. For example, I know that NZ favours a zone defence, but Australia more one-on-one tight marking, but what denotes a Caribbean style? Is there an Asian style developing? Do the African nations play yet another style? What do you think contributes to the different styles (if anything)? Is it coaches, or pathways available to young players, or a mixture of different things?
