Give Sport A Go

Give Sport A Go is the Union's recreational sports and physical activity programme. Give Sport A Go has a different approach to participation in sport, putting on drop in weekly sessions with absolutely no commitment to continue participating. Our sessions provide a non-competitive and relaxed environment to participate in whatever your ability. No sign up is required, simply turn up to an activity and Give Sport A Go.

We have a wide range of activities, from Badminton to Yoga, and our sessions are open to all students and staff on a pay-as-you-go basis, with sessions costing no more than £1 and all equipment provided. Our sessions include:

  • Running
  • Badminton
  • Cheerleading
  • Football
  • Women’s Football
  • Basketball
  • Table Tennis
  • Yoga
  • Capoeira

And plenty more to come with all sorts of UV activities planned throughout the year.
