Netball scholarship

Find out more about our netball scholarship at UoG.

Here at UoG we love netball and want our players to thrive in the best possible environment.

We have 3 competitive teams who play in fixtures against other universities in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league. We also provide recreational netball for those who cannot commit to regular training and fixtures but who love netball and just want to be involved.

All 3 of our BUCS teams are coached by fully qualified coaches. We have a partnership with Hucclecote Netball club and many of our netball students choose to play in competitive leagues with Hucclecote.

Hucclecote first team play in the National Premier League with other teams including regional and county level teams. There is something for everyone at every level.
