Welcome to UOBNC!
The University Of Bath Netball Club is one of the most successful sports clubs at the University.
Made up of 5 BUCS teams, a competitive development league with 6 teams, a thriving social netball offer and our new men's and mixed team. Whether you want competition, fun, fitness or all of the above, the netball club is the perfect way to get involved in sport at University!
How do I get involved?
1. Buy your netball membership from this page
2. Decide which part of the club you would like to join - have a look at this handy tool put together by our committee to help you choose!
The club offers the chance for members to trial for one of the 5 BUCS teams at both the beginning of the year and for team revisions throughout. All BUCS teams compete in BUCS leagues and cups with fixtures against other universities every Wednesday afternoon. Each BUCS team has a dedicated coach to ensure player development helping the club to continue building on its BUCS success. This is a high-performance training environment, requiring commitment to attend multiple sessions per week, with the top team overlapping with our inaugral Superleague Team Bath players. If you want to play in a high performance environment with dedicated athletes then come along to our BUCS trials.
The University Development league consists of 6 netball teams each with their own dedicated student coach. Trials for development teams are at the beginning of the year, once BUCS trials are completed. The 6 teams play in a competitive legaue of their own with fixtures on Wednesday afternoons, with occasional friendly matches against other local universities. Development netball aims to progress players towards BUCS standard and therefore requires high commitment and dedication to multiple sessions per week. If you want to play regularly in a competitive environment and progress your skills then come along to our Development trials.
MEN'S AND MIXED NETBALL
New to our club, our Men's and Mixed Netball is an opportunity for wider diversity in the club. With weekly training sessions, coaching workshops and competitions at the end of the year, we are proud to be building this area of the club and increase our outreach to all. This session is open to any standard and weekly training sessions will be provided by our student coaches.
Social Netball is the recreational form of netball within the University. Teams are formed from players that may be trying out netball for the first time, turning up to socialise, get fit and everything inbetween; so this is a great way to meet loads of new people and have some fun! There are lots of opportunities to play as much netball as you want and sessions will run weekly throughout the whole year, led by our student coaches.
Here's a glimpse of all of the action you can be a part of!
