Netball

“Its not the team with the best players that win.  It’s the players with the best team that wins.”

Who plays? SSS has 38 teams entered into 6 netball leagues, which makes it the second largest netball league set up in Scotland.

What is there? In addition to the SSS leagues, BUCS offer places to the top Scottish University sides in the national knock-outs, culminating in the Championship and Trophy finals at the BUCS Championships in Sheffield in March. For the Tiers in Tier 2 and below, the Conference Cup competition offers a group stage and then knock-out Cup for all of those teams to take part in throughout the season, with the finals taking place at the SSS Conference Cup Finals. SSS also host an annual Netball Tournament, which gives all netballing institutions the opportunity to be crowned SSS Champions regardless of what division they play in.

When does all this happen? League matches are played from the first Saturday in October and many university sides, in Scotland, also play in local and national competitions and leagues.
