It may be to your surprise but quite a lot of people don't believe netball is a real sport. Also Netball hasn't been around for very long and is a variation of the sport, basketball. Just as T-ball and Soft Ball is a variation of Baseball. Each variation sport has their haters and lovers, although… Net Ball seems to have quite a lot of haters. There for, being a 'variation sport', not being very old and isn't played anywhere else in the world (or not in very many countries) it isn't included as an olympic sport. To become represented at the Olympic Games a sport has to fulfil a number of criteria, beginning with the "Value added by the Sport to the Olympics," and including its popularity, geographical spread (75 countries in 4 continents for men and 40 countries in 3 continents for women is sometimes mentioned), and governance. It must be played by men and women and have an International and National Governing bodies, an internationally applied set of rules and a detailed and recognised code of ethics. The cost of mounting a Championships, the provision of equipment and the history of the sport are all taken into consideration. Finally, it must be voted on. Netball is quite widely played in 60 or so countries and certainly qualifies from a popularity point of view, but while it passes on most counts (although the International Federation of Netball Associations still doesn't include the men's game), it is doubtful whether it would add a great deal to the Olympics, when basketball (which is similar, from which netball was originally derived and which has far more players around the world) is already an established Olympic sport. Nevertheless, the International Olympic Committee certainly keeps Netball under review, and has encouraged its development in various countries. (MORE)
