Performance Sport

We have big ambitions for our future in sport. We’re aiming for a top 20 finish in the BUCS rankings by 2020 and are excited to welcome athletes who will help us rise to that challenge. 

We are gaining recognition as a performance sport institution and  working with elite sporting partners in our city.

Our performance programme supports and incubates talent. We support over 70 teams across over 50 sports at our world class facilities. The performance programme looks to develop top-class student-centred clubs and individuals.

For 2016-17 we are providing additional performance coaching and free or highly subsidised support services to the following five spotlight sports.

  • Basketball: Men's
  • Netball 
  • Rugby League 
  • Swimming
  • Water Polo: Men's
