Netball Club

At the University of Manchester, the esteemed Women’s Netball Club represents the University in a variety of BUCs leagues, with our 1st team competing in the Northern Premier League and our 6th team playing other universities’ 1st teams. As a Focus Sport, we are regarded as one of the top 4 sports clubs at the university with the capacity to fully support the most talented athletes and maintain the high standards of netball we have achieved so far for all 6 teams. Alongside training and matches, we participate in various social events and community outreach projects: from coaching at our partner youth netball club in north Manchester, to regularly volunteering at a local soup kitchen and raising lots of money for charities close to the hearts of our members. Our previous volunteering and charity work helped us win the Social Responsibility Award as the most charitable club at the University of Manchester. Our club is committed to providing more than just a sporting experience, and we aim to make the transition to university a little easier. With a mother/daughter scheme and a dedicated wellbeing officer, we do our best to integrate new and returning members and create a support network like no other.

Club Philosophy

As a proudly all-female led sport, the University of Manchester Women’s Netball Club aims to provide a competitive environment on the court, and a close-knit, warm, and welcoming environment off the court. Teamwork and dedication are at the core of the club’s values and play an active role in the success of the club and each individual. With a significant number of members, the club also works hard to increase participation and improve the standard of netball throughout the north west, by participating in external tournaments and matches, as well as assisting with both Sporticipate and Campus League, providing a strong network of sporting opportunities throughout the university.
