Sports Clubs

Our sports clubs are at the heart of what we do. We have 35 different sport clubs which you can choose from. Each club is ran by elected committee and supported by a staff member.

Want to wear the Northumbria colours and represent your university against other universities in the UK, then BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) is for you! 

Just enjoy having a good kick about, or playing socially? Some of our clubs also offer a more casual training session.
