Parkour and Freerunning Club

|

Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Parkour Club

Parkour is a sport focused on the love of movement; using your body as a tool to get you from one point to another in unique, creative and challenging ways

I'm sure you've all seen videos of ninja-like people dressed in black, running around, doing big jumps and flips on top of rooftops.

That's Parkour:

Don't worry, we're not going to take you to rooftops or make you do anything dangerous that you're not capable of doing. We would best describe Parkour as a fun combination of athletics, gymnastics and climbing. We are in essence a group of friends who get together to train & push our bodies and physical limits, learning new skills, jumps, flips and tricks at whatever pace you're comfortable with & capable of. We accommodate to all abilities and welcome anyone, beginner or professional.

We provide a good variety of training and socials alike, with the aim of bringing our members together and creating a happy community with (at least) one thing in common; our passion for the sport.

Don't be put off if you've never done or even heard of Parkour before.

Come along and give it a go, make some unforgettable memories and some new friends!

Join the 'University of Sheffield Parkour' Facebook group, email us at parkour@sheffield.ac.uk, find us at the Freshers Fair, or message us on our dedicated Instagram account @uosparkour

To create a friendly community that is passionate about parkour while also pushing members' physical and mental capabilities as they progress healthily throughout the year. We want to help our members reach & exceed their own personal goals.
