NETBALL

Netball is available to all at University of Birmingham. Alongside our highly competitive student club which supports over 100 players from a recreational level through to elite competition, we also offer the chance to compete or just play socially. Even if you are completely new to the sport, we have something for you.

STUDENT CLUB

University of Birmingham Netball Club is a highly competitive club that supports over 100 players, from a recreational level through to elite competition. 

 

Our first team compete in Premier North, and 4 more successful squads competing in the BUCS leagues (Midlands 1A, 2A, 2B, 4A). Our 6th and 7th team compete in the local Birmingham Netball League (BNL) with our development squad competing in the University campus league.

 

The 22/23 season was highly successful for the club. Placing third in the country overall for Netball with BUCS points, the club is one of the most valued on campus. Our first team were semi-finalists in the National BUCS Championships. Our 3s and 5s both reached the Conference cup finals, with 1st place and 2nd place finishes respectfully.

  

The club is inclusive, welcoming and friendly; supporting one another in and out of netball life and striving to provide a healthy and competitive environment for all members. Alongside training, members come together weekly to have fun away from the court and celebrate game days. The club is also highly involved in fundraising and charity events, where lots of fun can be had taking part in bingo nights, pub quizzes and more!
