Athletic Union

Who are we?

The Leeds Beckett Athletic Union has 40 sports clubs, and over 85 teams.

We have competitive teams who compete in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) leagues, events and competitions, as well as several non-BUCS clubs who take part in various recreational and outdoor activities, including Tchoukball, Sub Aqua and Snowsports.

The Athletic Union is managed by the university's sports office team, and is governed by the Athletic Union Executive Committee and our sports clubs' committee members.

Regardless of your sports interest, the Athletic Union is here to help you have the best student sport experience during your time at Leeds Beckett.
