Freshers Week 2021

Sport

Exeter is home to some of the best sports facilities in the UK, and the Athletic Union provides an excellent sporting experience for all players at all levels. If you’re looking to play competitively, or you’re keen to try something new, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved!

Social Sport offers a great way to get involved with non-competitive sports sessions with no weekly commitment. You can try Rounders, Dodgeball, Touch Rubgy and more!

The AU’s 50 sports clubs will be delivering both trials and taster sessions throughout September.

Trials are generally aimed at those who want to play competitively within a BUCS team for the University. Tasters give you the opportunity to try a sport you may never have done before and give an insight into what it would be like to be a club member. Both trials and tasters are free of charge!
