Newcastle University is one of the top universities in the UK for competitive sport, consistently finishing within the top 16 of the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) rankings. The Performance Sport Programme aims to maximise the performance of its representative teams and individual athletes within the BUCS programme and National leagues.

Performance Sport Clubs

Athletes representing Newcastle University in a performance sport will receive preferential support through enhanced team funding, specialised and professional coaching, state-of-the-art facilities, and sports science and support service provision. It is our intention that all performance sports will compete in the highest leagues possible e.g. BUCS Premier Leagues and NGB Leagues.
