Welcome to the University of Warwick Women's Netball Club
TEAMS AND MATCHPLAY
As a performance sport club, on top of our regular training sessions, our performance sport teams have access to: specialised S&C coaching, injury prevention sessions, physiotherapy and nutrition guidance. This support will have a club wide impact in the long run as we progress to be able to offer a more elite training environment to attract top level athletes!
We have 4 BUCS teams which play regular weekly matches against universities located across the Midlands.
Our two Development squads participate in regular match play against Midlands universities and local clubs throughout a local league year. This is organised by our development captain, Jessica Mills. There will also be opportunities for Development teams to train and play with our BUCS squads.
League teams (social netball) play in the university Active League on Saturday mornings against other clubs and societies at the Sports Hub outdoor courts.
There are also additional tournaments available for all teams throughout the year including our interclub tournamnets and inter-university friendlies to be organised throughout the year.

We are an inclusive club that offers a variety of socials which are open to all members. From weekly circles, themed bar crawls and Wasps netball games, as well as team meals, an annual brunch and christmas ball. We also offer both a domestic and international tour. At the beginning of the year you will be placed into a UWWNC 'family' which you will remain a part of throughout your time at UWWNC. This is where you will have 'family' meals before off-campus socials as well as 'family based' social events.
We circle every Wednesday at the Graduate (located within the Dirty Duck) from 7pm, followed by a night out to Pop!
Members are encouraged to participate in regular fundraising opportunities throughout the academic year. Last year we had our first Charity Week raising money for our chosen chairty, Papyrus. Which was incredibly successful as we raised £770, a UWWNC record. This year we also participated in the Coventry and Warwickshire 5k Pretty Muddy Run and fundraised £2,000 to be donated to Cancer research. Previously the club has run 1257miles for the 1257 NHS hospitals fighting against coronavirus and raised money for NHS Charities Together. These are just a few of the charity events that we have conquered over the years and something that is vital to being a member of UWWNC as we are keen to help make a difference in the world. Alongside our Charity commitments we also run a community based project, Netball in Schools, where you can volunteer to teach netball to primary schools. This year we plan on creating more volunteering opportunities for our members in the local communities.
There is an introductory umpiring course, as well as the opportunity for a C award umpiring qualification, subsidised by the club. Additionally, you can practise umpiring at our Saturday Active League tournaments 12-4pm. Volunteer 50 hours and receive half price gym membership for the year!
