The 2019/2020 season has certainly been an interesting one! Despite the season coming to a premature and dramatic end, we had one of the most successful seasons UPNC has ever seen. Our 1st Team went unbeaten for 27 consecutive games as well as claiming the Plymouth District Netball League (PDNL) Prem A Title, which had previously been held by Plymouth Pilgrims for 22 years. They were also Conference Cup Finalists and smashed their BUCs division, getting promoted to Western 1A. Our 3rd Team won the PDNL Division 1, alongside 4s, 5s and 6s placing third in their respective divisions. On top of all of this, we also offer a social netball league, where over 100 girls play against one another each week in a fun, non-competitive environment.
We have maintained our Gold Icons status, proving that we are one of the best clubs on campus. UPNC also offers chances to get involved with many aspects of Netball, including coaching and officiating.
Fundraising for Charity has a big presence in the club, last year alone we raised around £2,000 for PAPYRUS through many events such as Sports Tournaments, Quizzes, Bake Sales and the Plymouth 10k. Despite the UK going into lockdown, UPNC were up and running (literally) to raise £1500 for NHS Charities. We will be continuing with our fundraising success into this year with the charity CoppaFeel, who promote awareness of checking your boobs in all young people, male or female. We are looking forward to educating and starting conversations across campus about the importance of checking yourself.
COVID may have other ideas for Walkabout Wednesdays but UPNCs epic socials will make a return, just in a different format. Despite the very anticipated annual Tour being cancelled this year, it will be back bigger and better next year!
Old Girls and Freshers, we look forward to welcoming you all back to Plymouth to make up for lost time and hopefully kick start a better 4 months!
Can't wait to meet you all,
Beth (Chair) and Kayleigh (Vice-Chair) x
