Sporticipate Offer

Drop In

Our Drop In sessions run weekly, with a timetable of activities for you to get invovled with.

Want to try out Lacrosse or Ultimate Frisbee without the commitment of joining a club? No problem! Whilst these sessions do run throughout term time you are under no obligation to go each week (although we don’t mind if you do!).

If you go and decide you don’t like the session, no worries, you don’t have to go back. Similarly if you only decide a few weeks in that you want to have a go at volleyball, just go along to the next session!

You don’t have to register for each individual session, we just ask that you register for Sporticipate using the link above and then you’re free to go to the sessions you wish. Our friendly Session Leaders will be on hand to guide you through the activity, with many sessions giving you expert coaching right from the get go.

Learn To

Our Learn To programmes are designed to give you a more structured introduction to sport.

These programmes require some commitment from you, as you will sign up to a block of sessions to help you go from beginner to intermediate in any one of our sports on offer.

In previous years we have run programmes in boxing, scuba diving, water polo and handball – to name just a few! Have a look below to see what Learn-To’s are currently on offer.


One-off events are just that, one-time activities for you to experience something new!

We live in a city rich in world-class sporting facilities, and we at Sporticipate want to make the most of it. In the past we’ve taken students and staff skiing and snowboarding, trampolining, and go-karting but we’ve got plenty more events up our sleeves.

See below for what we’ve currently got on offer, but again, these are advertised first to those who’ve registered to Sporticipate and who’ve liked our Facebook page.
