Fastnet is similar to regular 7 a-side netball, with a few minor modified rules. Games run from 5.45pm to 9.30pm Monday evenings.
Each quarter lasts 8 min with 30sec quarter breaks
Teams may have unlimited substitutions with no stoppages
Each team separately nominates one ‘power play’ quarter in which each goal scored by that team counts for double points
The GS and GA may shoot goals from outside the shooting circle. These goals count for two points, in a ‘power play’ quarter they would count for 4 points. Umpires raise one arm for a single-point goal and two arms for a two-point goal
After each goal the team that conceded the goal takes the next centre pass, teams alternate taking the first centre pass of each quarter
