Intramural Sport

Newcastle's participation sport programme for all students and staff

What is Intramural Sport?

Intramural Sport is a programme of participation sports held every week at Newcastle. The programme is open to all abilities.

‘Intramural’ means ‘inside the university’. We offer a wide range of leagues, cup competitions and tournaments, as well as coached sessions for those looking to develop their game. You’ll compete against teams and players of Newcastle University students and staff.

All sports take place on campus in the Sports and Fitness Centre or at our accessible outdoor venues around the city of Newcastle.

Choose your sport

Choose from a huge variety of sports - Football, Netball, Squash, Badminton, Table Tennis, Futsal, Basketball and Rugby. Do what you love, or discover something new.

If you fancy a fun team experience with a healthy dose of competition, Intramural is for you:

  • team up with your hall mates, course mates, society or group of friends
  • join an existing team and get to know new people
  • come along to one of our coached sessions and develop your skills

No matter what your level of skill or experience, there’s a place for you in Intramural Sport.

Join the 3,200+ students that take part in Intramural Sport each year. Will your team lift the legendary trophy?
