Welcome to Cambridge University Ladies' Netball Club! My name is Sophie and I’m Club Captain for the 2018/19 season. 

This year, for the first time, we will be selecting squads for 4 teams at the beginning of the year, 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 24th September until Sunday 30th 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 soon.

Trials will be held the following week on Friday 5th October 4-6pm, make sure you register by emailing slm90@cam.ac.uk with your Name, College, Netball experience and 1st and 2nd choice positions. 

For those interested in our summer fitness plan please get in touch. 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! 

Sophie Maitland

CULNC Club Captain 2018/19



We ask that those wishing to trial turn up 30 minutes before the allocated time in order to register.

Friday - 15:30

Saturday - 20:30


Trials will take place over two days.

The first day will be for any new members of the University or members of the University who are not already members of CULNC.

Day 1 will be at Cambridge University Sports Centre on Friday 6th October, from 4pm to 6pm.

The second day will be for those successful on the first day plus current members of CULNC.

Day 2 will be at Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre on Saturday 7th October, from 9pm to 11pm.

Each person wanting to trial is required to pay a fee of £5 to cover the booking of the sports halls. Failure to pay this will mean the individual will not be able to trial.

The results of trials will be posted here, shortly after each trial period has ended.

Any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me: cjm227@cam.ac.uk

Summer Fitness

Due to the nature of the Cambridge term BUCS matches begin as soon as term starts. There is little time to prepare for our first match and therefore we rely on team members being as prepared as possible for the demands of the game...

In order to help prepare current members and incoming members the fitness team at the University Sports Centre have prodcued a summer training plan which can be accessed here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/2y8swagpwcu5r2j/Chloe%20Merrell%20CULNC%20Gym%20Pre-season%202017-18.xlsx?dl=0

The plan continues strength and conditioning exercises with pre and post-hab. You will find that the plan is set over 6 weeks. Ideally you should aim to start, week beginning 14th August, in order to be ready for preseason on 25th September. The plan will require access to gym for the strength exercises.  If you have any trouble with the exercises or do not know them Youtube will provide short videos demonstrating what they are. 

There will be a fitness test after trials for those who are successful and the results from which will factor into team selection for the following match. 

Best of luck and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us!
