What sports are available?
What if a sport isn’t available?
If your college doesn’t have a team for one of the above sports, or a sport is missing from the list, you can participate in the team of another college, or work with college staff to set up a new one.
To start a sports team, you’ll need at least five members. Contact your college staff or student committee to find out about the next steps.
If you’d like to test your competitive edge, there are a variety of competitions to get involved with; from qualifiers to leagues, college cups and the college varsity against Durham University each year.
As well as being a great experience to participate in, there’s ample opportunity to come along and cheer for your college team too.
Other ways to get involved
There are more ways to participate than just playing a sport.
You could be a college sport rep and help organise teams and run events, officiate games as a sporting official or join the college sport committee and oversee how college sport is run.
