Cambridge University Ladies’ Netball Club

Welcome to CULNC!

Hi, I’m Ciara and I’m the Club Captain for the 2020/21 season. CULNC is one of the most popular and successful female sporting clubs in Cambridge.  We consist of 3 teams, the Blues, Jays, and Swallows, each of which competes in weekly BUCS matches and trains up to 3 times a week. We can’t wait to build on the previous successes of each team this season. Despite the disruption caused by Covid-19, CULNC is committed to delivering as high-quality training and matches as possible in a way that is safe for all our players. The highlight of our season is the Varsity March against Oxford in Lent Term and the Club will be training hard this season to secure wins for all 3 teams.

We also run 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.

Information about 2020/21 Preseason (which incoming freshers are welcome to attend) and Trials is now available on this website. We hope that many new faces will be joining the CULNC family this year!
