The INF Netball World Cup is a quadrennial international netball world championship co-ordinated by the International Netball Federation (INF), 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 2015 Netball World Cup in Sydney Australia , 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 13 more tournaments.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The title was shared because there were no finals, the top 10 teams playing off in a round robin. Each of the top three teams won eight out of nine matches, losing once, to one of the other two. The tournament rules of the time did not provide any way of determining an outright winner.
  2. ^ There were no finals, the top 4 teams played a round robin tournament. Australia and Trinidad & Tobago ended the tournament with one win (against England), one loss (to New Zealand) and one draw (with each other). The tournament rules of the time did not provide any way to break this tie.
  3. ^ Suva, Fiji was scheduled to host the 2007 competition but was stripped of the right as a direct result of the December 2006 coup. Hosting rights were subsequently awarded to Auckland, New Zealand, and the competition date moved from July to November 2007
