About CULNC

CULNC is one of the largest and most successful women’s sports clubs at Cambridge University. CULNC is a highly competitive club, promoting equally enjoyment alongside success. Netball is the largest female sport in British Universities & Colleges Sport and Cambridge is proud to have 3 successful teams, the Blues, Jays and Swallows, playing in this competitive environment. From 2021, CULNC will also have a competitive fourth team, the Wrens, as well as a development squad which is open to everyone. Furthermore, the annual Varsity Match against Oxford is not only the highlight of the season, but often its ‘Varsity Magic’ leads to outstanding performances. We are extremely proud of our achievements and wish to maintain our reputation as a dedicated and friendly Club.

CULNC aims to promote high performance, success, and fun at both college and university level. Looking ahead, CULNC would like to improve links between college and university level in order to make the most of the talent Cambridge has to offer.

Aside from the university teams, CULNC also runs the extremely popular College Netball League and annual Cuppers tournaments for both ladies and mixed netball. Both of these are great opportunities for players of all abilities to get involved at a more social level. We encourage as many as possible to come along and have a go. So, everything to play for!

On behalf of CULNC, I would like to thank our coach and all our supporters and sponsors. Your continued dedication is highly valued and immensely appreciated.

FAQs

Commitment

Club members are expected to attend all training sessions, and be present for BUCS matches on Wednesday afternoons when selected. We appreciate that timetabling your academic studies around Netball isn’t always possible, so please get in touch and with any concerns.

Training and Matches

The Blues (1st) and Jays (2nd) train on Monday and Friday with experienced County Academy coach Helen Stepney. On Sunday morning the Blues and Jays have strength and conditioning training together, whilst the Swallows and Wrens train for two hours with ex-England captain and Mavericks Futures Academy coach Jo Moxham. 

The Blues, Jays and Swallows all play weekly BUCS matches on a Wednesday afternoon alternating home and away matches. The three teams will each have a Varsity match against Oxford, this year taking place in Oxford. The Wrens will play local matches prior to entering BUCS in the 2022/23 season. 

Socials

Being a member of CULNC is great fun both on and off the court. Our Social Secretary organises regular Wednesday socials with other sports clubs in Cambridge, and CULNC also attends many highlights of the Cambridge sporting calendar including the Hawks & Osprey’s Ball and Varsity Rugby Match at Twickenham. Other events include CULNC Christmas Party, Annual Dinner and Varsity celebrations.

Blue Status

Netball is a Full Blue sport. 1st team players have the opportunity to qualify for a Blue. All 1st, 2nd and 3rd team players who play in the Varsity Match are awarded University Colours, which entitles Osprey membership. Extraordinary Blues may be awarded on an individual basis via an application to the Blues Committee.
