*CLUB OF THE YEAR 2018/19*


The University of Surrey Netball Club is one of the largest, most successful sports clubs at the university. We have a total of 6 teams ranging in level of play; 4 whom participate in BUCS to compete against Universities across the country, and a further 2 development squads playing in the Surrey Sports Park local league. Additionally, we offer an intramural league and PlaySport sessions for those looking for a fun way to keep fit.

The 2020/21 season is going to look a little different, but we are working hard behind the scenes to provide as much Netball as we possibly can in a safe and secure environment. 

In 2019/20, we had a fantastic season with 2 BUCS teams - our 3rd and 4th squads - winning their respective divisions and gaining promotion for the coming season, despite not playing all their scheduled games due to COVID-19 Our 1st team continues to play in division 1A with the 2nd team closely behind in 2A! Our development section also had an amazing year with huge improvements made and a brilliant performance at the annual SHOTs tournament in March.  We were honoured at Colours Ball with 2 team awards and multiple individual honours, including the Team Surrey award, and Club & Half colours. 

In the 2018/19 season, our first team reached play-offs for the second time in three years. This followed on from the success had in 2016/17 season whereby we were promoted to Premier League and played in this elite category for the season of 2017/18 - a huge achievement for the club. Even more so, extending the success of the 2018/19 season were promotions for both the 2nd & 3rd team after smashing through their respective divisions. Because of this our Netball club were awarded Team Surrey Club of the year, the highest honour at Colours Ball. 

Further achievements of our club include:  

  • Club of the year 2011/12, 2012/13 & 2018/19 
  • Team of the year 2016/17 
  • Most Sustainable club 2013/14, 2019/20 
  • Steve the Stag charitable award 2019/20
