Sport

The Activities Council looks after the sport supported by LUSU, from teams competing nationally in BUCS to the annual inter college tug of war  as well as the thrashing of York at Roses.  Everything is organised by the Activities Exec and LUSU to make sure you’re  getting the most out of your sport. Whether you have been playing since childhood or just want to try something new, we can provide you with the chance to play your sport, be it inter varsity, inter college or in local leagues, there really is something for everyone!

Information on setting up a new group

Sports Groups

We have over 35 sports clubs ranging from American Football to Korfball as well as the staples of rugby, netball, football, and hockey who all compete against other institutions regularly with the hope of winning their leagues and competitions.

View a list of all of our sports clubs and societies.

To join these groups and try out for the teams then make sure you find them at Freshers Fair on the Thursday of Intro week between 12-5pm. You can also go along to one of the many Intro Talks and Team Trials taking place by downloading the schedule below. However, all groups still take members throughout the year so don’t feel put off if you want to join later on in term.

Inter College Sports

Want to be a part of the winning college this year?

Some people may say playing for your college is not as prestigious as representing the University, but have you ever seen some of the inter college matches? Bitter rivalry seeps through the very core of most inter college athletes and losing is not an option. It’s very easy to forget defeat against another University, lose to another college and you’ll be reminded of it every day.

We have a number of college leagues running throughout the academic year that include football, netball, darts, pool and dominoes. These are some of the most popular sports we have at the university and always create a great atmosphere at each of the events, so get involved by speaking to your college sports reps or team captains. The league results can be found by following the links at the bottom of this page.

Your college sports reps will be able to give your more information regarding inter collegiate sport that takes place at Lancaster.

Watch this space for exciting news regarding new opportunities that will be starting this year.
