Cambridge University Ladies’ Netball Club

Welcome to CULNC!

Hello, I’m Izzy and I am the CULNC Club Captain for the 2024-25 season! CULNC is one of the largest and most popular female sporting clubs in Cambridge and has a really welcoming, inclusive and friendly atmosphere. 


We consist of 4 teams: the Blues, Jays, Swallows and Wrens who have regular training up to 4 times a week and all of whom compete in weekly BUCS matches. We also have a team, the Robins, who take part in a few local matches, who is chosen from our Development squad who also train once a week.

The highlight of the year is always our Varsity match against Oxford which takes place in Lent term. All 5 teams compete and this year we will be training hard as usual to ensure we retain the trophy for another year!

As well as the sporting success displayed by CULNC, we have regular fun club socials where players can relax and create strong friendships with their teammates and members within the club. 


We are always interested in welcoming new members, and so if you have any questions, please do get in touch!
