MMU's Athletic Union is one of the best in the country. Each member of the AU brings something different including a generous dose of banter; do you think you can do the same? If the answer is YES then you may be fortunate enough to be part of the BEST group of students at MMU. Throughout the years we have no doubt known that no other uni's have the same banter as us, including our rivals MMU Cheshire and of course University of Manchester.
MMU Netball Club is no exception to this general rule and we all contribute to make MMU students proud.
Every member of MMU Netball becomes part of the family. We are always looking out for each other and work hard on and off the court to ensure all new comers feel welcome. Previous members of MMU Netball always say that joining the club was the best decision they ever made and their closest friends at uni were from Netball. All of their fabulous memories will stay with the club, but now it's time to make some new memories and you could be in them.
Netball Club 2013/2014
Our season starts on the 16th October this year, but we shall be running trials and training prior to this so we can be as strong if not stronger than our successful teams of 2012/2013, with our thirds winning the BUCS league and our firsts coming runners up in the league (further than we have ever got before - wooo)
Please come and find us at the freshers fair on WEDNESDAY 25th & THURSDAY 26th September, to sign up for trials!
Trials will be on Monday 30th September 6pm-8pm, Wednesday 2nd October 2pm-4pm (but please sign up at the freshers fair so we can be expecting you at trials).
To try out you will have to pay a fee of £3 - this is to cover our costs of the halls etc.

NETBALL INFORMATION FOR PLAYERS
You should all know by now that training is on a Monday - 6pm to 8pm in the Sugden Sports Centre with a professional Netball coach, Phil Greenough.
To keep your place on your team we expect you to be committed, passionate and willing. Training sessions on a Monday should not be a chore; those who show commitment will be awarded at the end of the year.

As you may or may not know... this year our Bucs league is combined with MMU Chesire... this makes no different to us or our training etc so dont worry! This is how it will work...
So our 1st will be 1sts, 2nds will be 3rds, 3rds will be 5ths, 4ths will be 7ths, 5ths will be 9ths (Hope this makes sense)

If you are not a netballer, please do not be discouraged. We accept friends, housemates and best friends as social members. Every year a number of the Netball girls bring their friends along to events and matches for support. We take pride in having some of the best social events calendar in the whole of the UK. From fancy dress Netball tournaments, TOUR, the Athletic Union end of year ball, Christmas parties and of course our regular Wednesday nights out (the more you can make the more fun you will have!). Being a social member is one of the best ways to make friends and if you don't believe us, ask all of the netball girls who represented us last year, or the girls that went on TOUR to SALOU in April 2012...
These are held at least once a week, which are every Wednesday night after matches, to make the most out of netball, coming out on the socials is a big MUST! We normally pre-drink at someones house/halls, before heading out to the Student Union and then wherever afterwards. We theme each week with a different fancy dress, we shall give you plenty of notice though as to what we are going to be, this will ensure enough time to get together everything for your outfit.
