From competitive netball to playing as part of a club or just for fun, we’ve got loads of opportunities to get involved.

TeamBU Netball, our Performance Sport teams, compete in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues and competitions. We have three teams who represent BU and play in different tiers of the Western league, the Western Conference Cup and the Western Conference Plate.

In addition to TeamBU Netball, you can play netball in a variety of ways while you study with us through Campus Sport. If you’re trying your hand at netball for the first time or looking to improve your skills, they’re all a great way to exercise and make friends.
