Sport and recreation

Joining a sports team isn’t just about getting fit. It’s also a great way to have fun, make new friends and gain excellent teamwork skills. London Met Students’ Union runs a large number of sports clubs for students wanting to participate. A number of our teams regularly represent London Met in the British Universities College Sports (BUCS) championships and the London Universities Sport Leagues (LUSL).

Looking to take fitness classes or start a new exercise routine? Our fitness and recreation centres include excellent facilities and a variety of classes at the lowest fees for our students. London Met has gyms at both of our Holloway and Aldgate campuses with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment, a full-sized basketball court complete with scoreboard, and a dance and fitness studio.

"Setting up the Futsal team and playing the first game ever at the University is probably the highlight of my time at London Met so far." Isaac, founder of the London Met Futsal team

"When I first came to London Met I really wanted to play rugby but unfortunately there was no women’s team so I started searching for a team outside the Uni… I then spoke to the SU’s Sport and Activities Development Coordinator, Danny, and he suggested I start a team. He helped me get started. Now we have an active team and compete against other universities.” Barbara, women’s rugby
