Clubs & Societies

Sports teams and clubs are a huge part of sporting life at university. Manchester Metropolitan University has over 40 sports clubs and teams. From Akido to Cheerleading, Football to MMA and Squash to Waterpolo, at Manchester Met there’s a sport for everyone. There’s also plenty of opportunity to get involved in sport without joining a club.

Sports teams compete in university leagues against other, as you saw in the video above, as well as against other universities across the country. Each university sports club is part of the Student Union, helping students to run their sports club successfully. Competitive sport against other universities is formally organised by British Universities & Colleges Sport, or BUCS. Teams train once or twice per week, and teams compete against other universities, as part of BUCS, usually on Wednesday afternoons.

Student Snapshot #1

Hello Rebecca here… When I was at university I joined the Women’s Football Team. I regularly trained and competed with the team representing the university in BUCS competitions. In my final year at university I acted as the Vice-Chair for the club as well as the team captain. My experience playing club sport, greatly improved my university experience as I gained a lot of transferable skills such as communication and teamwork and I had a lot of fun too!
