Just Play


JUST PLAY is our recreational sports project that has been created for students and staff thanks to support provided by the union, the university and Sport England.

It consists of 18 different sports and physical activity sessions that are designed to make sure there is an offer for those of you that just want to play sport for fun, to keep fit and meet new friends.

We also offer leagues in various sports for those who want to compete without the commitment of joining a club or representing their college.

Just Play College Free Weeks

After popular demand Just Play will be continuing to deliver college free weeks during Term 2. The initiative aims to encourage individuals to make new friends within their colleges through the aid of sport.

 All students and staff are welcome to attend sessions as normal however during their designated college week they will receive that week’s session for free.

College free week passes are available to collect from LUSU during term 2.
