Halls sport

Join in our fun programme of social sport in halls.  There is something for everyone.

Get involved

Our Residence Life Manager works with the Sport and Activity team to host a range of hall competitions and tournaments throughout the academic year. The emphasis is very much on having fun and getting involved. All residents in University halls are welcome, whether they are complete beginners or experienced players. You can either sign up with friends and flatmates or solo. Either way, you’ll be put in a team to represent your hall. Earn points for your residence just by taking part, and every time your team wins a game you’ll get bonus points.

Inter-hall climbing competition

We are excited to announce our second halls competition of the year is climbing. There will be two competitions running:

Top Rope - Teams of 6 from the same halls of residence attempt to climb the route with certain holds on the wall earning the team points. Individual Bouldering - Earn points for your halls by attempting different bouldering routes.

Joining in the hall's event is a surefire way to make new friends from your own hall and others. Even if you don’t consider yourself as sporty, there’s a chance to get involved as activities are open to all abilities and you don’t need any experience.
