Interested in joining a sports club? Join a Team Brunel club for free!

Team Brunel represents the student sports clubs at Brunel, ranging from team sports such as hockey and lacrosse, through to individual sports including judo and kayaking. In one of the most exciting changes for sports and exercise at Brunel, membership to all sport clubs will be free in the 2017-18 academic year. 

Our sports clubs have become more accessible than ever. We aim to improve the health and wellbeing of all of our students, regardless of ability or experience. We pride ourselves on high achievement and participation levels, and regularly achieve high BUCS points.

Want access to great fitness facilities?

Visit the Sports Centre or Sports Park and show your student ID to gain discounted prices to a range of casual sports activities. Or if the gym's more your thing, you can join our Brunel Gym in the Sports Centre.

If you are competitive in nature and want to improve your ability in athletics, basketball, football, futsal, rugby or netball, then our Sports Performance Programme within the Indoor Athletics Centre might be the thing for you.

Also, keep your eyes open for the Union of Brunel Students’ new social sport programme which will be launching in 2018, aimed at increasing participation at all levels across a wide variety of activities.
