St Mary’s Netball Club (SIMMSNC) is dedicated to supporting all its athletes in their sporting journeys.
We take great pride in the work that goes into the club on and off the court and are very proud of all the netballing achievements so far. We work hard in supporting the girls further than netball at university, with many of them previously playing for club teams, competing within Regional and Prem teams, as well as girls who have played in the National Performance League (NPL) for the Surrey Storm and London Pulse Franchises.
One of our favourite events of the year would be Varsity, where we compete against all sports teams at Brunel University. Out club won 2/3 games last year and our university won overall. It is a great day of fun and competition too.
We are the largest female club at the University with six teams overall, covering a diverse group of players, varying in levels of ability, age, and experience. We have four BUCS teams who play competitively throughout the year competing against teams across South Eastern region as well as two LUSL teams for individuals who wish to develop their skills, play socially and to keep fit.
We take pride in our reputation and post frequently on social media to update and inform our followers about new events and social interactions. We host themed socials every Wednesday night. This creates a friendly/inclusive environment bringing all the teams together. We love creating new themes and including everyone's ideas.
We also regularly partake in fundraising and charity events, such as tournaments for cancer research or bake sales for mental health, throughout the year to support amazing charities.
We host staff vs students' netball games, as well as participating and running Simmie Girls Can inclusive netball tournaments for anyone outside of netball who is welcome to join for the fundraising day. Events like this help to bring all the girls together for such important causes whilst highlighting these charities.
This year we are partnered with Polar Events and are lucky enough to have this amazing sponsorship agreement with them to allow us to provide staff for their great events as well as receiving funds towards our club in return.
Overall, our club is a fantastic way to make friends and be involved in sport whilst at uni.
