Our sports clubs, known as Team Newcastle, are part of the Athletic Union which operates out of the Students’ Union.

Many of our clubs complete alongside other higher education institutions in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competitions and leagues, and last year we finished in a fantastic 9th place nationally. Other clubs are involved in various competitions at a regional, national and international level.

Each year we also compete in an annual varsity competition against our neighbours Northumbria University for the honour of lifting the Stan Calvert Memorial cup
