We also offer an Active US Social Netball on Sundays from 6-8pm in the bottom sports centre, £1, for all those who love to play Netball or just want to try out a new sport. All abilities are welcome to come and join in and play and have fun.
This year we are going to hold tournaments open to all netballers, competitive or social once a month. This will allow everyone to play together, meet new people and have a laugh!
Social Secs: Faith Everett and Freya Woodhouse
Wednesday socials are everyone's favourite night of the week! We all get together in Yates, get ourselves £3 jugs of cider black, play a few games and head over to Pryzm with all the other sports teams! Coordinated by our lovely social secs these often involve fancy dress. Previous themes have included Life Guards, Glitter, School Girl, Tacky Tourists and it is a great way to meet everyone from Sussex Netball!
Highlights of the Year:
- Varsity is a very competitive day in the second term when each Sussex sports team takes on their Brighton equivalent.
- Student Union Awards Ball is a firm favourite and a good excuse to get dressed up!
- Sussex Sports Tour usually happens around Easter time and we go to Croatia and do what we do best! Anyone that has been on tour always wants to go back - so don't miss out!
