UUSU Sport, in association with Sports Services, has expanded the Social Sport and Physical Activity Programme to include creative and high-energy activities to encourage greater participation in sport and physical activity on each campus.  You do not need prior experience to attend any of our activities so you can get involved at the level you desire.  Social Sport and Physical Activity aims to encourage greater participation in sport and physical activity on each campus.
