OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH WASPS U21 HUB
The University of Birmingham are proud to be partnered with Wasps Superleague Academy, offering our students the local link with the U21 programme alongside the elite level standard of coaching. As well as four prime-time UoB club training sessions a week, Wasps U21s have their sessions on campus, which our 1st team also attend, allowing our players to benefit from the high level of coaching and play. The pathway from the University to Wasps is further strengthened by regular Age Group days that engage with the local community, and the association with the 2019 Vitality Superleague runners-up allows a link with key coaches, training programmes and observation by people such as Tamsin Greenway to develop players and offer an smoother transition into elite-level netball.

How to get involved
If you are interested in joining UoB Netball, please attend Sports Fair on Tuesday 24 September to meet members of the club and find out about trials / taster sessions. You will be able to fill in your contact details and pay a small fee for trials.
Please note that on top of the club fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.
If you would prefer to play recreational netball, we also offer weekly social netball sessions as well as Campus League where you can enter a team made up of friends, course mates or hall friends. Term 1 timetables for Social Sport and sign up forms for Campus League will be available online in September.

Successes and achievements
We had a very successful year in 2018-19 as our top two teams both became BUCS finalists and the remaining teams all comfortably maintained their positions in their leagues. Also, our 1st team won team of the year.
