    The Netball Club was one of the most popular clubs for female students at Jordanhill College of Education. Providing enjoyment and exercise, it also facilitated practice in coaching, essential for teachers who would be required to teach the sport in schools. Boasting a large membership of enthusiastic players, the club organised inter-section tournaments for both A and B graduates, in which all sections took part and, in the summer term, a final tournament was arranged between all graduate and non-graduate sections. External fixtures were also arranged yearly with external clubs, such as the Dundee Training College, Notre Dame, St. Andrews, Edinburgh and Bathgate. Training sessions and matches, supported by staff of the Physical Training Department, took place outside, whenever possible, but inclement weather was no deterrent to play: sessions were simply transferred into the College gymnasia.
