    Default Which verb is correct and is sentence natural?

    The class of girls play/plays netball every day.

    1. Is the sentence natural?

    2. Which verb should I use if it is natural?

    3. Is the choice of which verb to use in BrE different from AmE?

    Thanks.

    "The girls play netball every day." This is much more natural.
