Sports Union

 

The University of Buckingham Sports Union provides a wide variety of sports and fitness activities for students of all abilities. Some of our clubs are competitive, competing in local and even national competitions, but all of our clubs also cater for those students who want to take part in sport for fun. Our clubs are started by students, and so if there is a sport you feel passionate about and there are fellow students who want to start a club with you, the BSU is here to support you in starting up a new club.

A programme of sports is organised for those who prefer more informal activities, but still, want to join in with partner or team sports.
