Weekly netball leagues

There are two intramural netball leagues:

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

League fixtures 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. Teams can register for any league(s).

All fixtures are played weekly indoors at the Sport & Fitness Centre in Sports Hall 1 and have a qualified umpire from the University Netball club.

League format

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.

  • Saturday fixtures are 36 minutes in duration: 3 x 12 minute thirds with a 2 minute break between thirds
  • Midweek fixtures are 25 minutes in duration : 2 x 12 minute halves with a 1 minute break between halves.

At the end of the play-offs, the winning team comes away with a shiny crystal trophy and winners medals, as well as a place in Intramural history.
