Hi! Could MFP please add Netball to the calorie calculator?
It's a really popular sport in Australia. Many people play a few
times, each week. I've recently reccommended this app to my
whole netball team so we can continue to track our team's
progress between matches/ training. Please, please, please?!?!

I'd never heard of that sport! How interesting. Do you think (and I ask because I just read about it, didn't see people playing it) that the calories would be much different from those burned playing basketball?

Anyway, I hope your request is honored!

You can add it yourself if you know how many calories you burn (by wearing HRM) do a search for netball in "exercise" it wont show a result but scroll down and it says add an exercise bigsmile

cut and paste from the page

If you can't find an exercise in our database, you can easily add it yourself.

For cardio exercises, if you do not know how many calories you burned, instead of creating a new exercise, it's better to enter an existing exercise in our database that is close to the one you performed. This will at least provide you with a rough estimate of how many calories you burned.

Once you've created an exercise, you will be able to search for it and add it to your exercise log at any time

Yes! Please add netball! Currently I put it as basketball but i think the calories could be quite different...

Other sites put it at the same burn as basketball which I don't think is correct unless you play C. I just came up with my own burn and added it to my exercises. A complete guesstimate but a low one.

OMG!!!!!!!!! YES! Seriously this has been really bugging me!

It is WAY too popular not to have.

I think like with many other sports it depends on the game how much of a workout it was. I'd probably use the Basketball option, and then modify it southwards by 25%

I love netball :)
