What sports activities are available?

We've got you covered, whether it's a game of 5 a-side with some mates or training for the Olympics, Sport at Sheffield can be anything you want it to be.

You don't have to be a sports enthusiast, either. You might discover a hidden talent for Ultimate Frisbee. Or join a walking club and fall in love with the Peak District. Whatever your ability or experience, you're sure to find something that you love.

We have a huge range of sports clubs to choose from and many links to other clubs across the city. Hundreds of our students put on a black and gold kit and represent the University of Sheffield across the UK every Wednesday afternoon.

If you're in University accommodation then you can access a range of sporting activities for free through our Residence Life programme. And Social Sport is a low-cost, commitment-free way for all students to try a wide range of activities.

We run one of the biggest Intra Mural sporting leagues in the country - with entries from around 800 teams. You can sign up as part of a University club or just get together with some friends and enter your own team.

Every year our students compete in Sheffield Varsity against Sheffield Hallam University, attracting thousands of spectators from across the city. We're proud to be the current holders of the Varsity trophy (and have been for the last five years!)

If you're an athlete competing at national or international level, our Elite Sport Performance Scheme (ESPS) will help you make the most of your talent. You could represent the University in national competitions. We'll give you expert coaching and training.

All our sports facilities have disabled access routes. Our swimming pool has dedicated changing facilities and a poolside hoist. If you're thinking of using the gym we can provide personal support - just contact the Sport Sheffield team before you arrive.
