How do i join?

With a huge variety of clubs on offer, from American Football to Water Polo, there really is something for everyone. We’ve thought long and hard about how to help you find the best sport for you, and we’ve decided to split them up into categories: Airborne, Combat Sports, Indoor, Outdoor, Racket, Target Sports and Water-based.

To join, simply find a club you like from the list below and read about how you can get involved, or get a membership on each club page. Come along to our Freshers' Fair during Freshers' Week to meet all the clubs and sign up to as many as you'd like.
