Get to know the UCLU Netball Varsity Squad
The London Varsity Series introduces the Netball Varsity between UCLU and KCLSU for the first time ever – the Tab brings eager fans a guide to our UC Netball 1s.
UCLU Netball 1s compete in BUCS South Eastern 1A, KCLSU Netball 1s compete in BUCS South Eastern 2B. Statistically speaking the Netball Varsity should be a walk in the park for our UC netballers.
However, despite their different league tiers, the standard of netball is quite similar (which is very high – there are 18 netball leagues in total in BUCS South Eastern), and UCLU and KCLSU have always been very competitive.
So come equipped with this “who’s who” guide to the UCLU Netball 1st team on Saturday March 8th to watch what promises to be an intense showdown against Strand Poly!
