Time-motion analysis (TMA) in sport has been practised for some time and has been used in sports from figure skating to rugby. Studies have shown that each position has unique activity patterns that should be taken into account when training team players and assessing their match fitness.

This paper will describe the development of a netball performance test based on TMA of games played in Western Australia.
