Interest in University Sport


Sport plays a big part in the day to day activity of many Durham students. We have the largest participation rate of any university in Britain and are confident that there will be something for everyone. Our university level programme is also very strong. We have been ranked second in the overall British University Sport League Table for the past six years and, in 2016-17, we maintained our position as Britain’s number 1 Team Sport University for the third year running! We have over 50 clubs and many of our sports run 3rd, 4th and 5th team/squads as well as development programmes so please do not assume that University Sport is not for you. We want to hear from everyone who would like to represent their university.
