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.
