With four netball teams (Ladies 1s and 2s, Mixed 1s and 2s), Downing is one of the most successful colleges in the University when it comes to the sport. Every year, the Ladies 1s enjoy high success in the League, ending the past two years in poll position with a League 1 victory.

If you want to have the most fun possible on a netball court, the mixed teams are for you! Our Mixed 1s team are arguably the most successful in the University, winning Cuppers for two years running and finishing in the top 2 of League 1 year in, year out.

Netball at Downing is for everyone. It’s taken seriously enough to play at a high standard, but there is a friendly, social atmosphere and there is definitely a team for everyone.

We have regular training and all matches take place at the weekends. Time-wise, commitment to DCMNC and the ladies teams are relatively low, and if you need any more convincing, we have an end-of season dinner to celebrate what will inevitably have been a brilliant season. Everyone is welcome!
