Recreational sport - get fit, have fun
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to get involved in sport, regardless of ability, which is why we run a number of recreational activities for our students.
Our extensive programme of activities, many of which are free of charge, are designed to fit with your lifestyle; it’s a great way to try something different, meet new people and keep active. Activities range from badminton and boxing to yoga and Zumba, or just head to one of our ‘parks’ where you can play with your friends at any time.
You can join one of our state-of-the-art gyms on campus, offering something for everyone. Holywell Fitness Centre facilities include the latest cardio and resistance machines and there are over 80 fitness classes each week. Powerbase is our strength and conditioning gym, designed for those looking to improve core fitness or performance.
Taking part in team sport is a great way to get involved in Loughborough life and take a break from your studies. You can represent your hall of residence, department or society in a range of fun, sociable, but competitive leagues and one-day events.
Represent your university
Club sport is your opportunity to represent Loughborough University in the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) Championship. Loughborough University has won the BUCS championship for 35 consecutive years, and with nearly 4000 members, joining a club is a great way for you to be part of the unique Loughborough experience.
There are over 55 student-led sports clubs to choose from and competition for places in the teams is intense.
