We are one of the biggest and friendliest sports clubs at Barts with over 100 members! We have a range of 8 teams that play in various leagues (BUCS, LUSL, QM Sports and Community Leagues) allowing us to cater for all abilities. Whether you are brand new to the game or are already a pro, come along as there will be a place for you.
We are also one of the most sociable clubs at Barts with events every Wednesday so even if you don’t want to play you can still be involved with a social membership and make friends for life!
Our club has had an amazing year, we won Committee of the Year at Sports Awards, RAG Event of the Year for the 3rd time in a row for raising a whopping £2367 pounds for Streetdoctors and Whitechapel Mission and were named Club of the Year! We have also volunteering opportunities where our girls go into secondary schools and coach netball to the kids while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle!
Whoever you are, and whatever you want to gain from your club you will find it as a member of BL Netball!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working hard to organise and hold safe trials and taster sessions while following guidelines set out by the university, England Netball and the government. We don't yet have a date for when these will be, but we will keep this page and our social media pages updated (instagram: blnetball, facebook: BL Netball 20/21) so make sure to give us a follow! We know that this is an incredibly uncertain time, and that the start of your university life isn't what you expected, but we are a huge family and we are here to help you through it!
Everyone is welcome regardless of if you have played before; so when they do happen, come along and give it a try! You will need to bring sports clothing, trainers, water and most importantly enthusiasm! The captains will move players in and out of different positions until we find the place that’s right for you. After the trials, we will have the final squads and the captains will contact you. After this all you need to do is pay your subs and join our Facebook page to make sure you don’t miss out on anything!
