This study is investigating ankle sprains and chronic ankle instability in netball. Volunteers will be asked to complete a 10-15 minutes survey to find out whether they have suffered ankle sprain(s), what prevention and management strategies they use, and whether they suffer from any ongoing symptoms.
Each participant who completes the survey will go into the draw to win a pair of ASICS footwear.
You may be eligible if you:
- Are aged 14 years and older
- Play or previously played netball (any level)
- Either have OR have not previously sprained your ankle
- Live in either Australia or New Zealand
Ankle sprains in netball was designed and developed by researchers (Patrick Rowe, A/Prof Adam Bryant, Dr Kade Paterson, Prof Rana Hinman) at the University of Melbourne.
