Netball is open to all Northumbria University students at any level of experience. We have a number of options for you depending on whether you want to play competitively, develop your skills or just get back into the sport you used to love. 

Netball is one of our biggest clubs at Northumbria with 6 teams entered to compete in the upcoming BUCS season, plus 2 development squads that vary from competing in a local league to friendlies throughout the season.

All club training has now ceased for 2023/24. Students enquiring about joining the club in 2024/25 season can contact the Club Committee via email or instagram. 2024/25 memberships will be available to purchase from September 2024.
