Sport at Warwick

Working Out In the GymWe provide all kinds of sports for our community to enjoy, no matter what your level of ability or fitness. Whether you compete nationally or get active just to meet new friends, whether you're into ‘traditional’ outdoor team sports or want to try indoor climbing, you’ll enjoy great facilities, an enthusiastic atmosphere and dedicated staff at Warwick Sport.


Around the University you’ll find 60 acres of outdoor playing fields, including eleven football pitches, three rugby pitches, a lacrosse pitch, two cricket grounds and a frisbee pitch. There are three floodlit all-weather pitches, one of which is on artificial grass, ideal for football, rugby and American football. Three artificial grass courts and nine macadam courts are available for tennis enthusiasts, while the 400 metre all-weather running track, shared with the Godiva Harriers, gives plenty of opportunities for meets with wider competition.

The Climbing WallYou can grab a swim, work out in the fitness suite, or unwind in the sauna after lectures at the University Sports Centre, right in the centre of campus.

In addition to the 25 metre, six-lane swimming pool, squash courts and sports halls, the University also has:

Unique to Warwick, the Bear Rock indoor climbing centre includes a specialist bouldering centre, often used in national competitions, attracting attention from all over the region.

Sports tuition

If you want to learn a new activity, you could always choose from the range of tuition available on campus, which includes trampolining, golf, badminton and outdoor mountaineering. The Students' Union has its own sports clubs too, so you may want to join in with sports like canoe polo, baseball or even Irish dancing, among many, many more.

Sports bursaries

And if you're a very talented sportsman or woman, who has reached national standard or who has the potential to do so, there are a number of sports bursaries for you too. Sports clubs are a great way to meet people at university and go out socially as well as the chance to travel all over the UK at the weekends for games and tournaments.

But let’s stop exerting ourselves and head back inside – to the Students' Union.
