Student Sport Clubs

There is a place for you in Team South Bank

Being a sports club member keeps you mentally and physically fit and healthy as well as becoming part of an environment to meet and keep new friendships, have fun, create lifelong memories and establish and develop key skills future employers are seeking.

We have 10 sports clubs both competitive and non-competitive. We are believers in the idea everyone starts their sporting life somewhere, so why not start yours at LSBU?

The majority of our teams compete in the weekly league and cup fixtures, as well as individual championships run by British University and College Sports (BUCS) on a Wednesday and London Universities Sport Leagues (LUSL) on the weekends.
