A Blues win before the Varsity netball game

by Sarah Godlee on 18 January 2018

Cambridge University Netball Club had really nail-biting trip to Oxford yesterday for a double BUCS showdown - both the Blues and Jays (seconds) games were scheduled on the same day, just weeks before the big Varsity game.

Having watched the second team in a gripping game that unfortunately saw them lose by just one goal, the Blues were determined not to let Oxford have their way again. Despite the nerves and the screaming home crowd, Cambridge were unfazed and managed to keep the upper hand throughout, winning by two goals in the end: 44-42.

It was a thrilling day of netball, but the club is now looking towards the Varsity campaign, hoping for a double win against Oxford on the 25 February.

This year sees an important milestone in women's sport - the welcoming of netball coverage on national TV. You can watch the netball world cup qualifiers over the weekend on the BBC here.
