Recreational Netball

We are extremely excited to announce our new Recreational Netball programme for the 2021/2022 academic year. Led by Sophia Hudson, our VP, we are sure that whatever your motivation, you will find your netball fix with our new recreational netball programme.

We know the last 18 months has meant that a lot of students haven’t been able to play netball and it makes it difficult to get back into sport after such a long break.  At Saints Netball, we are sure we can provide all students at the University of St Andrews some netball sessions to suit their motivations.  We realise some of you may feel a bit uneasy about getting back into netball, but our coaches are here to help you enjoy your netball again, so come along and meet some likeminded people in the Saints Netball recreational programme. Have a read of the recreational netball programme below, and if you have any questions, please contact our Vice-President Sophia Hudson with any questions.

The recreational netball programme:

Recreational Netball is split into recreational coaching sessions, our new recreational league, the Saints Netball League (SNL) and some recreational tournaments.  You can chose to take part in all three offers or just one. We are hoping that through this range of options we can cater for a wider range of desired commitment levels, abilities and interests.  

Recreational Coaching 18:00 – 19:30 in the Sports Centre Arena and outdoors in the Cage. 

This is the same format as previous Social Netball sessions – 90 mins of coaching, once a week in the arena with a bit of match play at the end. 

Recreational League 19:30 – 21:00 held on the outdoor tennis courts

The Saints Netball League (#SNL) will run every 3 weeks starting from week 2, this is 100% match play in a more structured setting.

The league will run on the outdoor tennis courts and will be organised (including umpired) by Saints Netball volunteers. You can either opt to play in the league from the start, and just register your contact details and playing positions with us, or you can gather some friends and join together in September.  Either way, we will place people into teams to ensure each playing position on court is covered in the squads.  We will set the league playing schedule and you will be sent the details closer to the time.  

The dates for the SNL in Semester 1 are:

Wednesday 22nd September @ 19:30

Wednesday 13th October @ 19:30

Wednesday 3rd November @ 19:30

Wednesday 24th November @ 19:30

Recreational Tournaments

We love our mixed netball tournaments and alumni tournaments so much that we are planning to run even more this season!  Join us for a day of fun netball matches which will kick off at the start of Semester 1.  Everyone is welcome.  Keep an eye on the Saints Netball social media for more information.
