Sport for Staff

Welcome to The University of Manchester's Sport Staff page! Here you'll find all the information regarding the Staff Sport programme and upcoming events that you can take part in. All sessions will provide the necessary equipment and will have a qualified instructor/coach on hand.

Physical Activity is an essential part of well-being and provides opportunities to network and socialise with staff from across the University!


Sporticipate isn't just for students, the programme is fully open to staff:

  • Weekly 'drop-in' sessions with no commitment required
  • Regular Structured 'learn-to' programmes
  • One-off events throughout the year
  • Free of charge and no hidden costs
