It's a sport that's never featured at the Olympics - but thanks to the success of the Women's Super League and a triumph at this year's Commonwealth games, netball is on the rise.
The number of players looking for a new club has already risen by a huge 2,000% since the Roses won gold over the weekend.
England's netball success is already starting to rub off on clubs and schools in the East.
The numbers speak for themselves - 180,000 people play netball at least once a week.
On a typical weekend there are now more women playing netball, than there are men playing rugby union.
Last year, there was a 44% increase in participation, with an estimated 1.4 million women and girls now taking part in the game each season.
Students at King Edward VI School in Bury St Edmunds love playing netball.
It's one of the main sports taught there and many girls say they are now inspired to play professionally and one day follow in the footsteps of the England netball team.
After seeing England and Harlow's Jo Harten do so well in a major competition, teachers say it's already raising the profile of the game.
Netball fever has hit hundreds of clubs across the Anglia region.
In Norfolk, netball is growing in popularity among all age groups with waiting lists at many clubs.
Many of the players at Norfolk United netball club have already been spotted by the Hertfordshire Mavericks - the only professional club in our region.
For many girls, playing in a league provides a pathway to playing the game professionally.
Last year, Sport England launched the Walking Netball and Back to Netball campaigns - and around 2,500 people took part in them last year.
Next year, England will host the Netball World Cup in Liverpool.
It's a chance for England's women to shine once again and to build an even bigger following.
