A team above all. Above all a team.
Whether you want to play Netball competitively, or just for fun, UWE Netball is a great club for you to join. The training sessions and match play are always hard work and competitive, yet totally enjoyable at the same time!
Netball is the largest female sports club here at UWE. We have 4 competitive teams, all who compete in the BUCS league as you can see in the link below:
Our teams currently compete in the following leagues and divisions:
1st Team – Western 2A
2nd Team – Western 2A
3rd Team – Western 5A
4th Team – Western 6A
Teams that we regularly compete against include Exeter, Bristol, Bath, Southampton, Winchester and many more.
Training is always on a Monday evening and the time slot differs from 6.30pm-8.30pm and 8.30pm-10.30pm. We have matches on Wednesdays and these can either be played at home at the Centre for Sport or away at our competitor’s chosen venue.
VARSITY; GAME DAY!
This is an annual competition where all sports compete against a team for winning victory and champion title. UWE as a whole come together to support each other in various differing events and matches. Varsity Netball is HUGE!! UWE Netball compete against The University of Bristol; our biggest rivalry! 2016 showed very close competition amongst all teams but luckily the 1st Team smashed the second half of the match, bringing UWE Netball to an overall victory win! 2017 saw the scores incredibly close at the end of each match and provided payers and supporters with nail biting suspense! We also held a cake sale and raised £60 for a charity based in India called The Salaam Baalak Trust. This year, Varsity will be played on 26 November coinciding with This Girl Can week.. LET'S GO!.
In the last term we get the chance to take Netball on tour! The opportunity arises to spend 4 incredible days playing netball against many teams we wouldn’t normally get the chance to compete against in England. SHOCK.. we also have many themed and game based nights out which always provide a laugh and entertainment!!
April 2015 got to see the delightful Saloufest, with April 2016 going to Croatia! Tour is under discussion for 2017/2018.. so watch this space!
Club socials are every Wednesday without fail and are not to be missed! This year we are concentrating massively on incorporating all 4 teams together to ensure we ALL have the best and biggest nights out! Pam Pams nightclub is our weekly go to and never ever fails to disappoint! Theme and fancy dress nights will be a monthly event and initiations are a great laugh and a brilliant way of welcoming the netball newbies to our club.
