Recreational Netball Festival

Saints Sport, University Park, St Leonard’s Rd, St Andrews, KY16 9DY

SS Netball are delighted to bring back the HUGLEY POPULAR Recreational Festival for non-BUCS teams.

This will be a fun, OUTDOOR event with short matches to get everyone playing and enjoying the sport.

We’re delighted this event will be umpired by umpires going through their C-level assessment too, though do encourage teams to bring an umpire with them in case we need to call upon them.

Timings: Registration 0900 with first matches beginning at 0930. The event will finish no later than 1800. Full timetable is included in our Pre-Event Information

Eligibility: This event is for recreational players i.e. non-BUCS teams. All players involved must be currently matriculated and able to show student cards upon request. If you are not part of a student club, you will need to pay to join your Sports Union in order to be covered by insurance.

Team Entry: Please pay to enter your ONE team on the system HERE, then encourage your players to sign up to SSS Playwaze and join the team, so we know who to expect (see below). Each team is allowed up to 12 players on their team sheet.

If you wish to enter more than one team, please let the Netball Chair know and we will operate a waiting list to balance numbers

Player Entry: Players need to sign up to the SSS Playwaze system individually so we have a record of them on the team sheet. They should follow the steps in this How To Guide to sign up, then join the netball community before finding their team and joining.

Entry Cost: £30 per team (£20 entry fee and £10 donation to St Andrews Zambia Project) = less than £5 per player for a 7-person team – even cheaper if you have a full team of 12!

Payment: You will be able to pay by card on this system. If you wish to request support from your Sports Union to cover the cost of your attendance, please click ‘Defer Payment’ and this will send them an invoice request. PLEASE NOTE – you should talk to your Sports Union about financial support BEFORE you sign-up to this event
