As long as you are a member of the University, you are eligible to play for O.U.N.C. There are more specific rules concerning individual eligibility for the Varsity match in particular. For more details on these, see www.oxforduniversityblues.com
The trials are always held on the Saturday of 0th/Freshers’ week and the first Sunday of Michaelmas term (the first term in the academic year). For 2020 the dates are 10th and 11th of October.
There is no set level of experience that you need to play for OUNC. The standard of all players is assessed at the trials at the beginning of the year, and the best 30-35 players are chosen to be in the squad. The First, Second and Third teams are then selected out of this squad, but these can change throughout the season depending on performance.
Training: Per week there will be 3 or 4 netball sessions run by our dedicated coach, Lisa Manning, plus an additional fitness session.
Fixtures: BUCS matches are played on Wednesdays. Home matches tend to take up the afternoon and Away matches can take up to an entire day.
Full commitment of all the members of the club is expected and has been found to be more than manageable with other commitments at Oxford.
