Cambridge University Ladies’ Netball Club

Welcome to CULNC!

Hi, I’m Millie and I’m the Club Captain for the 2021/22 season. CULNC is one of the most popular and successful female sporting clubs in Cambridge. We consist of 4 teams, the Blues, Jays, Swallows and Wrens, each of which train up to 3 times a week. The Blues, Jays and Swallows compete in weekly BUCS matches, and the newly introduced Wrens will play against local teams with the aim of playing in BUCS matches next season. The highlight of our season is the Varsity Match against Oxford in Lent Term and the Club will be training hard this season to secure wins for all teams.

We also run very successful college netball leagues including both mixed and women’s teams. There will be an opportunity to sign up for a team through your College.

In addition to the sporting excellence achieved by CULNC, the Club creates an incredibly friendly, welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all its members. We run fun social events weekly throughout the year and foster strong friendships between teammates.
