UoN Engage

  
Basketball

The Engage programme has been designed to widen the sporting opportunities available to our students. 

With weekly sessions available in more than 25 different sports, there really is something for everyone!

No sports membership is required and all abilities are welcome. With no trials or set teams - you can just turn up and play.

In addition to our Engage progamme, Postgraduate students  are also able to access our Staff Sport programme. The current timetable can be found here.

If you have any questions, view our Q&A section (below) or if your question isn't answered, please  email the team.

 
 

Current Timetable (Monday 13 May - Friday 21 June)

All of our sessions are open to any student at the University, whatever your level of skill and all required equipment is provided for you.

Coached sessions are marked with a ©. These sessions are more structured and include drills and game play with a coach or instructor. 

For non-members, to speed up entry to the facility on the night, you are advised to register for a Pay As You Go account. This is optional - if you want to just turn up and register with reception on the night, you can do so!

In order to register for this account, please activate an account online here (staff and students of the University of Nottingham) or online here (University of Nottingham alumni). You will need to login with your UoN username and password to access the account registration page.

If you experience any problems, please email  daniella.dutton@nottingham.ac.uk

Your Questions

How much does it cost to attend an Engage session?

All Engage sessions hosted on University Park Campus, Jubilee Campus or Sutton Bonington Campus are just £3 per session or free for students with sports membership.

All students need to sign in on arrival, so please head to reception at least 5 minutes before the session starts to sign in and pay your £3 if you are not a member.

For our Engage sessions hosted off-campus, the cost may be different. Please check each individual sport on the timetable to find out more.

 

Do I need to have sports membership to attend Engage sessions? 

No - a UoN Sports Membership is not required for any of the Engage sessions.

However, all sports members can attend all sessions on University Park Campus, Jubilee Campus or Sutton Bonington Campus for free so it may be worth considering purchasing a sports membership. This will give you access to use all of our facilities, including the swimming pool and fitness suites.

 

 Do I need to book to attend an Engage session?

For all Engage sessions held on University Park Campus, Jubilee Campus or Sutton Bonington Campus there is no need to book.

However, for Engage sessions hosted off-campus, booking might be required. Please check each individual sport on the  timetable to find out booking information and relevant prices.

 

Does it matter if I have never played the sport before?

If you are a complete beginner to a sport, then we recommend you choose one of our Engage Coached sessions as these are designed for those who have never played before. A friendly instructor will show you the basics before you'll get chance to put your new skills into practice!

 

What if I can't attend the session every week?

It's no problem at all if you can't go every week. The Engage sessions are designed with busy students in mind! However, as always, the more you put into something, the more you will get out of it. By attending more sessions, you are bound to feel the difference to both your health and your skills!

 

Can I go to more than one Engage session?

Of course, you can attend as many Engage sessions as you wish. The programme is designed to help students try as many sports as possible to find the ones they like best.

 

What should I wear to an Engage session?

Wear comfortable sports clothing, suitable footwear and bring a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated. If the session is outdoors, warm/waterproof clothing is recommended!

If you have further questions about what to wear, please  email the team.

 

Do I need to bring my own equipment?

Whether playing Volleyball, going out on a Riding session or taking part in Climbing - all equipment will be provided for you. Just make sure you are suitably dressed, have water to keep yourself hydrated and have signed in at the reception desk or with the session leader.

If you have further questions about equipment, please email the team.

 

I'm a staff member at the University of Nottingham - can I still join an Engage session?

Staff members are welcome to join Engage sessions, but the University of Nottingham does run a programme of sport designed for staff which may be more suitable. Visit the  staff sport webpage for more information.
