Who We Are

Sport at the University

We are one of the UK’s leading sporting universities, regularly finishing in the top three of the BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) championship. We call it ‘Playing with Pride’ and one of the reasons why student athletes from across the country and around the world choose to study train and compete here.

The Club

UBVC is a thriving multinational club with around 100 members. We cater for all levels and abilities, playing in the regional league and BUCS league. We provide active lifestyle classes for beginners and a recreational session for people who want to play for fun, and provide a good environment for the mix of university student and community members. We run many social events throughout the year, including sports nights, Tea & Cake Party, Christmas social and our annual awards evening.
