Ringball is a traditional South African family sport that has been played since 1907. It is not very well known outside of South Africa.
It is a non-contact sport played by both males and females, usually in separate games.
It is similar to netball (and a netball court can be used), in which the court is divided into thirds, and in each of the three sections are three goal scorers, three center players and three defenders.
Simply, the play involves throwing the ball from player to player until it is thrown through the goal ring, which is placed at either end of the court.
- Netball — a team game with seven players on a side, similar to basketball except that players are restricted to certain sections of the court, and a player receiving the ball must stand still until they have passed it to another player.
- Cestoball — an Argentinian female sport similar to netball.
