Well hello; you've managed to stumble across Southampton's Medics' netball team & Medsoc's largest all female society - The Bluetits! Our training, matches, and socials are designed to fit around a busy medicine schedule allowing you to get your mind off medicine (we all need to sometimes!). We welcome girls of all abilities - whether you're a seasoned pro or haven't played since Year 9 PE! This year, we can't wait to maintain our Intramural (IM) league winners title and get playing other unis in the NAMS League. So if you're looking for weekly training, cracking socials, weekly hungover matches, and getting to know a lovely bunch of women, come and join us! Join our Facebook group (search "Bluetits Netball") for the full sales pitch and details, or get in touch with our Captain Amelia Tallents! We are so excited to meet you and can't wait to see what this year will bring! ILTB :)

I probably shouldn't brag tooooo much, but this is a sales pitch after all, so here's our recent achievements!

 

-Winner of University of Southampton Intramural League 2018/2019/2020/2021

-Winner of the Medsoc Sports Society of the Year 2018/2019/2021

-Finalists in the National Association of Medical Schools (NAMS) Tournament 2019/2020

-Winner of Medsoc Social Society of the Year 2017/2018

 

So what do we offer, you ask? Well...

-Weekly training nights (Wide Lane Sports Ground, 18:30-20:00) catered to a whole range of abilities. Whether you're a seasoned pro, or just getting back into the sport, we're here for you!

 

-Fortnightly(ish) Saturday night socials. We hold a prestigious reputation for our elite fancy dress taking on the roles of grannies, chefs, Harry Potter, Under the sea, and even Giant African Snails...

 

-Weekly Sunday morning matches (FANTASTIC hangover cure)

 

-Competitive NAMS matches once a month

 

-Fun fitness sessions and challenges (if that's your thing!)

 

-Varsities (vs Brighton, Birmingham, and Portsmouth)

 

-Bluetits Mystery Tours! Once a year we go on holiday for a long weekend, where you find out the location at the airport! In recent years we have been to Barcelona, Budapest, Lisbon, and Valencia (RIP Prague 2020 - the tour which never was)

 

-Pudding Socials - Frankly the highlight of the social calendar. When medicine gets a bit much, we like to meet up on a Sunday afternoon with lots of cake and tea, and just have a good natter

 

-Revision Sessions - the best part of being in a society full of amazing women on your course, is that we all help each other through! Revision sessions are run by older girls in the run up to exam season. We even got the runner up award for best academic event last year!

 

-Roast Socials, Visits to the New Forest Water Park, and so so much more. I hope this lengthy list has got the message across that we are SO MUCH MORE than a netball club!

 

We are a friendly, and approachable group of gals so join the page, or get in touch with anyone below on committee if you’re interested! Can’t wait to meet you all!

 

IFLTB,

Jo xoxo
