WHAT IS GREENWICH NETBALL ALL ABOUT?
At Greenwich Netball we are proud to say that we accept all abilities. So whether you are an experienced Netball player, have a keen interest in health and fitness or simply want to make new friends, please come along! You can be a competitive member, commit to just training sessions or be involved in our social side - it's entirely up to you! We currently have 4 competitive teams within the BUCS League, with divisions ranging from 5B to 11B. Every year, Team Greenwich come together to compete in Varsity against Team Medway. Last year's 1st team were successful in securing a win in a nail-biting game which finished 42-41.
Wednesday evenings are our designated social nights. Not only will our usual bevvy games take place, but this year we have the pleasure of spending our nights at the brand spanking new Greenwich Students Union, the LOWER DECK (Located in the new Dreadnought building on the Greenwich Campus). We are also very fortunate this year to be linked with Wicked Student Nights, allowing us into the best clubs in London at a discounted price! As the year comes to a close you won't want to miss out on some of our favourite social events, including VARSITY, TOUR, Netball's Charity Tournament, Sports Awards and much more!
CHARITY OF THE YEAR
This year, we at Greenwich Netball have decided to choose the Stroke Association as our charity of the year. A lot of our members have been affected by this medical condition and it is a cause that we as a committee are very passionate about. We will be hosting various events over the course of the year to raise as much money and awareness as possible for this amazing charity. We hope you are keen to get involved and show your support!
