Ten Super League netball matches were analysed using pre-recorded Sky video footage; data was collected from both teams allowing data from twenty teams. A hand notation system was designed, to collect the data, which was inputted directly into Excel and exported into SPSS. Two non-parametric tests were used in order to distinguish if there was a significant difference and effect on shot outcome the test were Friedman and Wilcoxon test. The results showed that, feed area, shooter position, shot type and the shooter all have an effect on shot outcome. It also highlighted the most successful feed area, which was 2 (left of the post) and shooters were, most successful, closer to the post. Practical implication of the study included how the information can be used in order to help coaches may decisions and plan training session based on the information found.
