We have one of the most advanced sports performance programmes in the UK for netball and this is emulated in the great performances we provide on court. Cardiff Met Netball aims to provide opportunities for all players, both at participation and performance levels. This is achieved by developing several Cardiff Met Netball teams that are incorporated in the following squads:

The Netball Club is one of our Focus Sports within the Athletic Union who have been identified as a high performance club and under the guidance of the Performance Director aim to achieve the very highest standards. Focus Sports benefit from additional funding which includes a number of funded gym memberships and access to all sports facilities for focus athletes, strength and conditioning, nutritional support and discounted physiotherapy.

The Club’s Players also have the opportunity of holding a Club Role, this is so the players themselves can shape the club; your sport, your club!  Roles are Club Chair, Vice Chair, Social Secretaries, Social Media Editors, Umpiring Secretaries, Fundraising Officers and a Kit Officer.
