At the University of Worcester, Netball is accessible to all at recreational, development and performance levels. We are working towards developing our team culture – ‘#oneHEART’ which stands for Health, Energy, Attitude, Responsibility and Teamwork, and members of the club look to embody these values in all their endeavours.
