Welcome to Cambridge University Ladies' Netball Club! My name is Chloe and I’m Club Captain for the 2017/18 season. 

This year we will be selecting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd team at the beginning of the 2017 season, and we are on the lookout for new netballing talent to join our existing club members. We have players whose experience range from playing school Netball to playing Superleague, so we encourage players of all standards to come along to pre-season and trials.

Preseason will begin on Monday 25th September until Sunday 1st October and will be hosted at Cambridge University Sports Centre. The week will include three netball training sessions and fitness to help everyone get back into the swing of things! A completed timetable including timings will be uploaded onto the website in due cause. 

Trials will be held the following week on Friday 6th October 4-6pm, make sure you register by emailing captain@culnc.org with your Name, College, Netball experience and 1st and 2nd choice positions. 

For those interested in our summer fitness plan please see the news article below on the website where you will be linked to a dropbox. There is a fitness plan attached spanning 6 weeks that should prepare you nicely for preseason and hopefully the season ahead!

We love to hear from anyone that is interested in joining CULNC so feel free to send me an email, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Blues remain undefeated, this time with a win against Nottingham 3rds

Blues 67 - 22 Nottingham 3rds 
Warwick 2nds 29 - 56 Jays 

The Blues started the game exceptionally with a lot fewer unforced errors and high levels of concentration,  that were lacking the previous week. Sophie Hussey had an excellent first half in attack,  working very well with her shooting duo Izzy Bell.  Nicky Taylor brought the ball beautifully down court, and the countless interceptions from Laura Spence, Charlotte Plumtree and Hayley Smith ensured domination from the start. Frances Lee-Barber and Emma Langley - Jones came on to bring a whole new style to attack which only advanced the Blues lead. Jodie Green also came on to cause even more damage in defence.  A very successful win of 67-22 showed how well the Blues play on home turf. Next match at home is Birmingham, who are always a tough opposition. The Jays also won away, smashing Warwick 2nds 56-29 to remain top of the league. 

#lightbluedomination continues in 2015…


Cambridge Blues continue their undefeated streak against Nottingham Trent 

Cambridge started a bit shaky in attack, but a very strong defence saw flying interceptions from Laura Spence,  Charlotte Plumtree and Hayley Smith.  Despite this Cambridge still led in the first quarter by 4, with some nice bounce passes. Although Notts were certainly aggressive,  Cambridge settled in the second quarter, seeing excellent shooting from Izzy Bell and Frances Lee-Barber. Cambridge finally started playing their own game, with beautiful movement all the way down the court, lengthening the lead. The third quarter saw some changes with Nicky Taylor coming on at WA, helping create some lovely space and Sophie Hussey performing very well in her shooting  alongside Izzy. Jodie Green also came on at WD, causing problems for Notts attack.  Cambridge won the game in the end with a well deserved 35-24. 


Man of the Match: Emily Coulter 

Jays beat Oxford Brookes 65-25 to go top of the league! 
Stepping onto the court this Wednesday, the Jays knew that this match would be no easy feat. Oxford Brookes, having been the only team to have beaten the Jays this season, were top of the league and the team to beat. However, the Jays did not disappoint. Securing a lead of 16-5 in the first quarter, the Jays went out on the offensive setting the pace for the rest of the match. The shooting duo of Maddy Eno and Emily Elliott were on fire in attack, with a near-perfect shooting record. Similarly, the defensive unit of Charlotte Salisbury and Kate Garden kept Oxford Brookes out of the circle, intercepting every ball which came down the court to hold up the play and secure a turnover. The second half saw Oxford Brookes tire as they failed to adapt to the Jays dominating play, as the lead stretched to 42-18 going into the final quarter. The centre court work of Zoe Sciver, Caitrin Bush and Becky Haggie continued to provide excellent service to the shooters, creating several options down the court in order to keep the momentum throughout. The Jays won the game 65-25 to move up to top of the league, a position which they will seek to maintain throughout the remainder of the season in order to secure promotion. 

Man of the Match: Maddy Eno
