Netball is a group of around 40 girls who make up four teams; we all play in two different leagues: BUCS (South East England) and LUSL (London). All teams train twice a week as well as playing twice a week in the two different leagues - part of the reason why netball tends to become such a close-knit group of friends. We are lucky enough to have two professional coaches - Shelley and Freya - who both have vast experience playing netball and are always a great support. We had an amazing season last year: beating Surrey in the varsity match, sweeping up an amazing five awards at Colours Ball and raising nearly £1000 for a charity combating homelessness to name but a few of our highlights. We are keen to maintain this level of hardwork and excellence in the coming season!

Raising money for charity is also an important aspect of being a part of netball at Royal Holloway. We are planning to hold two charity netball tournaments this year, where mixed teams play an afternoon of netball in fancy dress all in the name of raising money for charity. Last year was a huge success and as well as having fun we managed to raise a whopping total of £400, something we hope to increase even further this year!
We hold weekly socials every Wednesday in Medicine before going to the SU, although optional, attendance is encouraged as they provide a fantastic opportunity to really get to know your teammates! These socials have weekly themes such as Noah's Ark, under the sea and the club favourite Come In Your Kit just to name a few. On top of this, we also have day trips planned for example going to watch netball superleague matches together. Official annual socials include the Christmas meal and Club awards at the end of the season. Excitingly we are also planning a netball summer tour 2020... watch this space.
