"I want to represent the University of Nottingham"

We have over 70 sports clubs at the University, several of whom compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues or in other national and regional competitions. Some clubs run trials at the beginning of the Autumn term to select squads but many welcome new players throughout the year.

You can choose from 13 different sports including football, netball and rugby and teams can be made up of halls (join your Facebook group) societies or groups of friends. Matches all take place on campus, either on Wednesdays or weekends.

Got a question?

Check out some of our frequently asked questions and if your query isn't answered below, then email us at sport@nottingham.ac.uk and we'll get back to you.
I've decided which sports clubs I'd like to join - how do I purchase my club membership?

In order to join one of our sports clubs, you will need to purchase a club membership via one of the below methods:

  1. Find your sports club on the Students' Union website and login using your University account (activated upon registration). You will then be able to make your payment online - card payments only. Returning students, please note that 2021/22 memberships will be on sale online from 1 August 2021. 
  2. Visit the Welcome Fair and collect a bar code sticker from the stall of the club you would like to join. You can then take this to the tills at Welcome Fair and pay by either card or cash. 
  3. Visit the SU Box Office in the Portland Building where you can make payment by cash or card.

Please note, several sports clubs will also require you to purchase UoN sports and fitness membership - check with an individual club to see if this is the case. 

 
I'm studying and living at Sutton Bonington campus - how can I find out more about what sports clubs and activities are on offer at my campus?

There's lots of ways you can find out about the sporting offer for Sutton Bonington students:

  1. Visit the Sutton Bonington Welcome Fair on Monday 20 & Tuesday 21 September at the Sutton Bonington sports centre. Here you can visit the sports clubs based at Sutton Bonington and meet the UoN Sport team. 
  2. Visit the Sutton Bonington Guild website for a list of all the SB sports clubs you can join.
