Netball

Get agile, sharpen your ball skills, and soak up the team spirit with intramural netball.

We play netball in weekly leagues and in one-day tournaments.

Weekly netball leagues

There are two intramural netball leagues:

  • Saturday league has 16 teams
  • Midweek league has 16 teams

The leagues take place in Terms 1 and 2. Both leagues are split into divisions of eight.

When and where

The Saturday league runs from 10.00-13.00.

The Midweek league runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 17.00-18.00. Midweek teams can register for the Tuesday 17.00-18.00 or Thursday 17.00-18.00 league.

All fixtures are played weekly indoors at the University Sports Centre and have a qualified umpire from the University Netball club.

Teams play each other once in a league format. Once all the league fixtures have been played, the top four teams from each division qualify for the knockout play-offs.
