About the Club

We have 6 Teams entered into BUCS. All teams attend training on Monday nights and a fitness session on Friday mornings. The top two teams also have Strength and Conditioning sessions throughout the week. All teams have matches on Wednesday afternoons that are either at The Armitage or Away at opposing Universities.

We’re looking for enthusiastic sportswomen, who enjoy playing netball at a high standard and are ready to make commitments to the club. Enjoying the social side of the club is also a must!

Club Philosophy

UMWNC is made up of netball players who give their everything on the court to produce the best result possible. Each girl comes onto court to win no matter what team they are in or who their competition is. Every player in every team wants the best for each other and for them to achieve all they can in every competition and match they participate in. Support is extended to every corner of the club for and from every player, to create close knit team and club mentalities.
