How do I join a sports club?
You can join a sports club online by clicking on 'Join a Club', finding the club that you would like to join and then adding it to your basket.
Alternatively you can pop in to the Union Reception (on the concourse next to Costcutter) and pay in person.
Do I have to have played before to join a club?
Our Team Brunel sports clubs are open to all Brunel students, regardless of ability and experience; they cater for beginners looking to try a new sport right through to international athletes at the very top of their game.
How much does it cost to join a club?
Just £40 for the entire year - and you can join as many clubs as you wish within this Union Sport Membership price!
In 2017, the Union lobbied the university for funding to remove the membership fees for our sports clubs, meaning that these days, once you have purchased your Union Sport Membership you no longer have to pay a membership fee to join one of our Team Brunel sports clubs - and you can join as many clubs as you wish, helping to remove cost as a barrier to participation, something that we are very proud of!
