Abstract: Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine the knowledge about injury prevention during all India university Netball women's tournament. Materials and Methods: For this study, 14 female netball players from different universities representing different universities age ranges from (18 to 24) were selected from the health center at Central University of Haryana Mahendergarh. The selected subject was referred health centre because of some internal and external injuries that's why we selected the subject those who were admitted to the health centre. In this study, the observation method was used and the study variables were leg pain, finger pain, ankle twist, foot pain, and finger cut. Results: We found by our observation method that there are 5 common injuries in netball games. The result of the study was that 3 players had hand finger pain, 8 players had leg pain, 1 player had a finger cut,1 player had ankle pain and 1 player had ankle twists. In this tournament, most of the injuries have happened to the goal attacker and goal shooter in which finger cuts, finger pain, and foot pain were some common injuries in a netball game. Due to having a proper health center in Central University of Haryana Mahendragarh, the injuries of the players were properly treated under the guidance of MBBS Doctors.Conclusion: It was concluded that the goal attacker and goal Shooter of the netball game suffered more injuries because when the player shoots the ball in the ring, the ball comes in direct contact with the fingers of the players which they get more injured. But some other reasons were also that the players did not have any physiotherapists and first aid kits and coaches lacked knowledge of injury prevention and therapeutic exercise for this reason, players of many universities continuously had to suffer from netball injuries.
