Joining a sports club

Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or just looking to get in shape and meet some new friends, we recommend checking out Sports and Active Lifestyles.

How can I join a Leeds Beckett University sports club?

You can meet the university’s clubs at the upcoming Fresher’s Fair at Headingley Campus and sign up to their free taster sessions. The university has 40 clubs for you to join, so if you have any questions for the teams you can find and DM them on their social media accounts.

Find a club for you here.

I’ve not played sport in a long time - can I still join a club?

Definitely! There are a small number of clubs that trial for places, but the majority are open to new members all year round. You will be surprised how many students join a club having never played the sport before. My advice would be to sign up to as many taster sessions as you can, who knows you may even discover a hidden talent.

I don’t enjoy competitive sport, but I still want to play

The university’s social sport programme gives you the chance to take part in sport away from the competitive teams. From the programme’s turn up and play sessions to their basketball, football and netball social sport leagues there’s plenty of opportunities for you to join in with all of the fun.

Sport isn’t for me, what else can I do to keep active?

Sport & Active Lifestyles has lots of different offers and memberships available just for you. They have two gyms, one at Headingley Campus and the other above the Student Union’s bar in the Leslie Silver Building, as well as swimming pool, fitness classes, an athletics track and court/facilities hire for you to enjoy.

I know that physical activity is good for me but I don’t know where to start?

The university offers a range of lifestyle courses that are perfect for beginners. Activities include yoga, tennis, squash, running and even introduction to weight lifting sessions. Lifestyle courses are great for beginners or those looking at getting back into physical activity.
