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 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!

Jays vs. Loughborough 3rds 21/10/2105

TEAM 21/10/2015:

GK: Kate Garden

GD: Becca Hitchings

WD: Kate Garnett

C: Catrin Bush ©

WA: Becky Haggie

GA: Emily Elliott

GS: Fran Jenkins

Subs: Zoe Evans, Megan Lockey, Elly Harrison

The Jays set off from the drizzle of Cambridge for their second BUCS Wednesday to play Loughborough 3rds on their extraordinary home turf aka ‘the netball centre’. While some of us woke up with butterflies for the upcoming match, GD Becca Hitchings woke up excited to snoop around their facilities. Fortunately we weren’t so intimidated when we arrived when we saw the (almost) Cambridge blue sports hall walls. Error Loughborough. This was followed by a good warm up and a fairly dominant first half, with the scores neck and neck. Brilliant play from the defensive circle (Becca and players player, Kate Garden) picked off ball after ball of the Loughborough attack. Pressure put on the Jays getting it out of defence leading to frustration but the girls worked hard using front cuts and making sure there is always more than one option. Half time hit us and the pressure was still on, we hadn’t pulled away but stayed positive. We had no changes which was a challenge to our fitness, and was possibly the reason for dropping 5 points behind by the end of the third quarter. Calm words from captain Trin urged us to keep our cool – and a complete sub on of Zoe Evans (WA), Megan Lockey (WD) and Elly Harrison (GS) gave an injection of new energy in the final quarter. Sadly we still couldn’t turn the tide of Loughborough finishing the game 44-34 to them. Despite this all agreed that it was a good match with some nice passages of play – and makes us all excited to come back and smash ‘em next time round!

With 10 days to go, here is this year's Varsity Promo Video... 


March 1st 2015
University of Cambridge Sports Centre 

Come and support the Blues, Jays and Swallows in their annual Varsity Match against OUNC, this year on their home turf at the new University of Cambridge Sports Centre! GDBO. 

Swallows vs. OUNC Emus - 9:30am 
Jays vs OUNC Roos - 11:30am 
Blues vs. OUNC Blues - 1:30pm 


Blues remain undefeated, this time with a win against Nottingham 3rds

Blues 67 - 22 Nottingham 3rds 
Warwick 2nds 29 - 56 Jays 

The Blues started the game exceptionally with a lot fewer unforced errors and high levels of concentration,  that were lacking the previous week. Sophie Hussey had an excellent first half in attack,  working very well with her shooting duo Izzy Bell.  Nicky Taylor brought the ball beautifully down court, and the countless interceptions from Laura Spence, Charlotte Plumtree and Hayley Smith ensured domination from the start. Frances Lee-Barber and Emma Langley - Jones came on to bring a whole new style to attack which only advanced the Blues lead. Jodie Green also came on to cause even more damage in defence.  A very successful win of 67-22 showed how well the Blues play on home turf. Next match at home is Birmingham, who are always a tough opposition. The Jays also won away, smashing Warwick 2nds 56-29 to remain top of the league.
