Can I take part in sports and physical activities?

Published: 6 August 2020

We will continue to run our online fitness programmes and classes to keep you motivated and energised. If ‘on the ground’ fitness activities are more your thing then visit CitySpace, our sport, fitness and social building. Our Technogym fitness suite will be open and our wide range of fitness classes will be restarting, indoors and outdoors, with fewer participants and gaps between users in the fitness suite. You can use our booking system to secure your place at a fitness class.

The Institute of Sport has been working with all the sport governing bodies to ensure that each of our student-led sports clubs is back up and running from Welcome Week. We have to wait until at least January 2021 for competitive sport between universities to restart, but from October we will have a competitive offer and opportunities to practice and play. We are already well into advanced planning for futsal, tennis, equestrian, archery, table-tennis, football, cricket, athletics, individual water sports, badminton and volleyball, and expect an autumn restart.

We are adapting our usual activities to allow training sessions and ‘mini’ sessions where we are not able to offer a full version.

It’s not all about competitive sport; we will also be offering a good range of recreational activities. You can get involved with campus walks and runs, cycle routes, teqball, and frisbee challenges. There is indoor climbing and our team love to dream up new adventure activities, as well as set up games of rounders and softball.
