10 reasons why you should join RUNC

 2nd Year History student, Millie Nye, shares exactly why she thinks you should join RUNC. 

  1. RUNC has won some of the top awards atRUSU’sSports Awards, including: Club of the year 2016/2017, Team of the year 2016/2017, and Coach of the year 2017/2018.  


  1. Our three amazing BUCS teams each won their divisions last year, moving up divisions for the 2018/2019 season. 


  1. As well as our highly achieving BUCS squads, we also run inclusive social sessions every Sunday for girls who want to play netball non-competitively, so it’s a great chance to try something new or pick up netball again from your secondary school days.   


  1. Our socials are renowned for being great nights out. Each and every social is themed and run by your social secs. Every member of RUNC is welcomed, regardless of ability. It is a night to have fun, relax, socialize and typically GET DRUNK!  


  1. Our kit incites jealously from all other clubs, with us RUNC girls parading around campus in our fit af stash. From RUNC coats to bags, we have it all and everyone knows it.   


  1. RUNC is a place to socialize and meet new people. Everyone in RUNC is friendly and approachable: some of your netball friends will become your best friends for many years to come.   


  1. As a member of RUNC, whether it be part of the BUCS teams or as asocial member, you will be keeping fit and staying active, which is important at Uni to work off all those snake bites, pizzas and other Park Bar indulgences.  


  1. A key event in the RUNC calendar is Varsity. Annually, RUNC girls take on the Oxford Brookesquads in an attempt to defend their titles. Naturally our first and second teams last year were triumphant. Unfortunately, it is only available for BUCS girls to play,but this doesn’t mean it isn’t something we can all enjoy. Everyone who comes along and watches us at Varsity has a great time too, screaming support from the side-linesSo, come on down and support your Varsity teams, get bevved and make some noise.   


  1. Through playing at the club you’ll develop transferable skills that can be applied to other aspects of your life. Netball is great for building communication, teamwork and leadership skills, so joining RUNC would look great on your CV.  


  1. Finally, and most importantly, IT’S SO MUCH FUN! We are one of the biggest clubs at Reading, and that is because of the passion and enthusiasm that our members always have. Every girl who is a RUNC member loves netball, and that is because it is so much fun and so rewarding in every aspect.
