Netball


Key Information

Netball has the highest female participation numbers within Scottish Student Sport! 

Increasing year on year, there are currently 48 teams entered across 8 BUCS leagues from 15 Scottish Universities and Colleges.

BUCS league matches take place on Saturdays, from October to February with knockout Conference Cup and Plate matches throughout the season, which finish up at the SSS Conference Cup Finals in March.

Many Scottish university teams also compete in local association leagues, regional ladders and national competitions.

The annual SSS Netball Championships is hosted towards the end of the season, which gives all netball institutions the opportunity to be crowned SSS Champions regardless of the division they play in.

Meet your Sports Chair

Emma Cartmill

I was introduced to Scottish Student Sport at the beginning of my university career at Heriot-Watt in 2015. After graduating four years later with an MA (Hons) in International Business with Spanish and awarded full blues for outstanding performance in Netball, I knew sport would continue to be a huge part of my life.

During my time at university, I was part of the SSS National Netball Squad in 2016 & 2019 and have represented my country with Netball N.I. since 2013, currently training with the N.I. Senior Squad. I have been involved in many volunteering roles such as Sports Union Ambassador and Club Captain at Heriot-Watt Netball Club.

This has led me to join the tribe at SSS as Netball Chair in 2020, while working as Sports Administrator at Heriot Watt Sports Union. I am truly passionate about the positive impacts of sport and how I believe it has the power to inspire, unite and drive individuals to pursue their goals.
