Melbourne University Lightning (MUL) is a netball club within the Victorian Netball League (VNL). The club fields teams in Championship, Division 1 and Under 19s in the VNL. They also have a number of development teams for open and underage athletes.

In 2019 MUNC and MUL formed a partnership to strengthen both clubs. MUNC Premier 2 athletes have the opportunity to train with the MUL Open Development squad and experience top level coaching from some of Victoria’s most experienced coaches.

MUNC and MUL hope to bridge the gap between competitions and provide MUNC athletes, a clear pathway to join the VNL. MUNC is very excited about this new partnership as it will strengthen the club overall and provide current players, the opportunity to step into an elite pathway.
