Sports and Recreation

Whether you're a dedicated rugby player, need a fix of yoga to get you through or just pop to the gym now and then you'll find something to keep you fit and healthy.

Our on-campus facilities and brand-spanking new sports centre will give you plenty of opportunity to get involved in the activities you love. There are a host of sports teams to join and weekly active-lifestyle classes, such as Zumba, Rajio Taiso and Pilates, so there's plenty to try.

  • Cheerleading
  • Martial Arts
  • Olympic Weightlifting
  • Badminton
  • Rugby (League and Union)
  • Mountaineering
  • Snow Sports

Take a look at the Students' Union website for a list of clubs to join and get involved in team training, games and trips.
