The Students' Union currently supports, develops and administers 38 competitive and non-competitive sports clubs with a membership of just over 1500 students. Competitive sports clubs compete in British Universities College Sport (BUCS) and Southern England Student Sports Association (SESSA) as well as local and national competitions. If you want to try something exciting and new, the Union supports a range of non-competitive clubs, from the depths of sub-aqua to the heights of snowboarding. These types of clubs organise and arrange weekend trips, and there are always opportunities for training and development for students to reinforce the growth of these activities.
We are a function of the Students’ Union with the aim to provide support and advice to any of you looking to start up or join a club. We have a broad range of sports currently up and running from traditional sports such as football and rugby to non-traditional sports such as cheerleading and mountaineering.
Coming to a University where you may not know many people can be a daunting prospect. Joining a sports team is a great way to make friends and meet new people. As well as being part of something you feel passionate about. If there isn’t a club here that appeals to you, you have the opportunity to set a new club up and run it your way.
