What is Newman Sport? 
Newman Sport represents, co-ordinates, administers and promotes the sporting and recreational needs of students. Newman Sport not only offers recreational sessions for students that just want to enjoy an active lifestyle and have fun, but is also promoting competition within the University and also with other Higher Education institutions at the British University and College Sport (BUCS) national competitions, across a number sports, including:

  • Badminton
  • Football (2 Men’s teams)
  • Golf (2 Mixed teams)
  • Netball

Further to these competitive sports teams, Newman Sport are keen to progress emerging sports at the University that are currently in a development stage. These developing sports include:

  • Basketball
  • Squash
  • Touch Rugby
  • Women’s Badminton
  • Women’s Football

Players of all abilities are most welcome to join the competitive teams or the recreational activities; with some teams being offered coaching. We also endeavour to support individual competitors where we can. Recent individual entries have included athletics (track), cycling (road & track) and boxing.

Where is Newman Sport based?
Newman Sport is based in the Sports Centre, Edwards Building. The Student Sports Co-ordinator is available to all students to discuss any Newman Sport queries between 7am and 3pm (reception closed 11.00am – 11.30am) from Monday to Friday.

How much does it cost?
A Newman Sport Membership costs £35 for the whole year. The NSM entitles students to access to any sports team training session, eligibility for BUCS competitive fixtures, increased access to facilities during organised intra mural activities and the necessary insurance cover for training and fixtures. Students will be unable to participate in any fixtures, training sessions or intra mural activities without a NSM.
