Sport is a huge part of the University’s identity and 12,500 of our students (about one in three) are participating in an NTU Sport programme.

At our BUCS Top 10 University, we foster a community built on Pride, Unity, and Respect. From beginners’ to advanced fitness classes, from Play for Fun sessions to competitive sport clubs, we support students of all levels. So, whether you’re looking to test yourself against the best, or just find your way around a chest press; our inclusive environment welcomes everyone.

NTU has 59 sports clubs, which open their arms to every level of ability so the time to get involved is now! Whether you want to try something new or continue with an activity you’ve been doing for years, there’s sure to be a club for you.

How to join a Sports Club:

  • Step 1: Attend the Freshers’ Fair to learn more about all the sports clubs. If you have a club in mind, then be sure to visit their stand and find out when they’re running trials and taster sessions.
  • Step 2: Go to a trial or taster session: During Welcome, clubs put on taster sessions soo you can go along and try it for yourself. You can also find out about club trials – clubs with competitive teams will hold these during Welcome. If you want to try out for the club but aren’t sure, have a chat to a committee member – they’re all friendly and welcoming. To find a list of all trial and taster sessions please download the NTU Sport App or browse events taking place during Welcome. Please note: All trials and taster sessions on the NTU Sport App will appear 7 days before the start date of the event, on the sport club trials and taster tile. If you have any issues making a booking, you can enquire at any of the NTU Sport Reception Desks in person or call (City – 0115 8484066 / Clifton – 0115 8483219) so we can help. Alternatively, you can speak to the club reps at one of the Freshers’ Fairs who can advise.
  • Step 3: Purchase a club membership: When you’re ready, take a look at membership details and prices. These will cover you to train and compete for a year.

Play for Fun:

Playing sport doesn’t have to mean a big, long-term commitment, we run regular Play for Fun sessions that focus on making sport sociable, inclusive and enjoyable. There’s no requirement to join a club, but all sessions must be booked in advance on the NTU Sport App. To find out more please visit Play for Fun.
