Sport Sheffield | The University of Sheffield

Hello and welcome to Club Sport

Club Sport provides many opportunities for you to participate and compete in a wide variety of sports while you are at University.

With 51 sports clubs for you to choose from and many links to other clubs across the city I’m confident that there will be something out there for you to carry on your existing sporting interest or for you to try something completely new during your University years.

Clubs offer much more than just playing sport and Sport Sheffield clubs are committed to delivering an excellent sporting student experience by providing students with a wide range of opportunities to get involved in sport, exploring new and exciting places, develop personal skills, celebrating sporting achievements, developing a sense of community and pride and also a chance to develop friendships for life.

If you prefer a competitive sporting arena then you can join the students who put on a black and gold kit and represent the University of Sheffield across the UK every Wednesday afternoon.

We aim to establish a top twenty ranking in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues and continue to offer a broad spectrum of sports opportunities.

With over 57 teams competing throughout the year there are plenty of opportunities for you to be involved.

As well as the weekly BUCS competition our clubs compete in many other competitions and events throughout the year including the annual Varsity event against our city rivals Hallam University.

If you would like further information or wish to contact our clubs directly please click on the individual club links for further information.

I look forward to seeing you all this year and if you wish to contact me at anytime for further information and advice please do not hesitate to contact me.

All the best for the year ahead!
