The game will take place as we celebrate female engagement in sport,as part of This Girl Can Week, 21 November at Lee Westwood Sports Centre at 17:30.

Taking a break from the league, NTU Netball are playing their opening cup match of the season as they take on BUCS Northern 1A side Edge Hill. The girls will be hoping to pass through to the next round without any hiccups as they look to go all the way in the competition.

NTU will be looking to avoid a repeat of last season, when they fell to defeat in the second round of the cup losing 44-40 to local rivals University of Nottingham. Head Coach Louis Hopkins will be hoping the girls will carry some stellar league form over to the cup to take them to victory.

Five wins from six in the league has helped the team to second in the table. Come down to Lee Westwood Sports Centre and support the girls as they look to progress in the cup. You can also check out a whole host of amazing games as part of our Female Fixture day taking place on 21 November. See full timetable here.

Our Match of the Week features as part of Trent This Girl Can week, which celebrates our female students, recognises achievements and helps in encouraging women to be active - get stuck into activities and try new things.
