The World Netball Championships is a quadrennial international netball world championship co-ordinated by the International Federation of Netball Associations (IFNA), inaugurated in 1963. Since its inception the competition has been dominated primarily by the Australian national netball team (Australian Diamonds) and the New Zealand national netball team (New Zealand Silver Ferns). The most recent tournament was the 2011 World Netball Championships in Singapore, which was won by Australia.

History[edit]

In 1960, representatives from Australia, England, New Zealand, South Africa and the West Indies met to discuss standardising the rules of the sport. This led to the establishment of the International Federation of Women's Basketball and Netball (which later became the International Federation of Netball Associations). Formal rules were established at this inaugural meeting and a decision to hold World Championship tournaments every four years was also made. The first World Netball Championship was held in 1963 and was hosted by England. Since then there have been 12 more tournaments.

Results[edit]

Liz Ellis, the most capped international player in the history of Australian netball, won the competition three times as part of the Australian national team.
