Performance Netball

Why Nottingham?

Players studying at University of Nottingham join one of the university’s fastest developing programmes, with access to some of the best netball facilities in higher education sport as well as establishing strong links between the University and England Netball. As a result of this, the facility hosts annual events such as NPL competitions and England Roses training camps.

All squads compete in high performing leagues including the 1st team who have secured their place in the BUCS Premier North league since their promotion in 2018/19, and have continued to uphold their place in the highest BUCS competition in the country. The performance programme entails various sessions including both on and off court training, a strength and conditioning programme, and classroom based sessions, as well as 1:1 coaching opportunities with the Head of Performance Netball, Paige Reed.

We currently have an abundance of high performing student-athletes with the example of Kelechi Ambros who currently plays in our BUCS first team and has represented England Roses Academy, and has featured within Superleague clubs in recent years. Talented athletes including Leeds Rhinos Super League player, Emily Hollingworth, and England U19 International, Ally Housley, are amongst some of the clubs most recent alumni stars.
