Competitive leagues

Competitive leagues can be found via the Athletic Union website where there are over 34 clubs with many participating in the British University & College Sports (BUCS) league each year.

Semi-competitive leagues 

Campus Sport is the University Sport and Recreation Department's sport participation programme.

The leagues run during the academic year, with games lasting from 20 to 70 minutes, and include sports such as badminton, dodgeball, netball, basketball, football (5,6,7 and 11-a-side), futsal, squash and tennis.
