Meet the girls set to thrash King’s at Netball Varsity

Ballers

Tomorrow night sees one of the most talked about events in the London Varsity series: netball. It’s the biggest netball event of the season, and after last year’s defeat by just one teeny tiny point, the UCL girls are back and more ready than ever to take to the court and, quite frankly, annihilate King’s. This year’s team is packed with fiery new freshers, and since they’re top of both their BUCS and LUSL leagues, the KCL girls are probably quaking in their little boots. Bless.
