Competitive Sport Membership

Competitive Sport banner

Want to represent the University in your chosen Sport?

Or student teams and individual competitors compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) Leagues, as well as other national competitions and leagues.

Some clubs require you to go through a trial to get onto a team, but most clubs offer opportunities to attend taster sessions during Welcome Week and join regardless of whether you have played before or not. You can find out more about each club by visiting their page, and in September you can speak to the current members of any club at the Freshers Fair on Luton and Bedford campuses.

If can't quite find what you are looking for, get in touch with our competitive sports officer at [email protected] who will be happy to help
