The many sports clubs run by the Students' Union are a great way to meet new people outside your usual social circles. There are also plenty of other opportunities to play sport, whether it be in a competitive, recreational, or ad-hoc capacity.
Students' Union Sports Clubs
It goes without saying that most sports will improve your fitness, but sport is also a great stress reliever and a welcome break from a long day of studying.
Run by our Students' Union, these clubs allow you to compete nationally in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues. Even if you've never played a certain sport before, it's a great opportunity to try something new.
Many clubs hold their own social events, so your team mates can quickly become your friends. Being part of a sports club is also often recognised by employers due to the personal skills you acquire when working as part of a team.
