There’s no time in your life like the time you spend at university. It’s a chance to explore who you are and what you can achieve. You can push boundaries and break barriers.
You don’t have to be an elite performer to love sport at the University of Portsmouth. At Portsmouth, getting involved in sport doesn’t have to be about talent. Determination is what matters. You’ve come this far. There’s no limit to how much further you can go. So even if you’ve never laced up a pair of trainers, there’s no better moment than right now.
Play, train, compete…the choice is yours.
With 24 competitive sports clubs at your disposal, the choice really is yours. Play socially with friends, train with a team to improve your skills or compete and represent the University of Portsmouth.
Interested in seeing how our clubs are getting on? Take a look at our results pages or see our fixtures list to find out where you can next see our teams play.
If you compete at the highest level, or have aspirations to do so, we can support you during your studies. Our sport scholarships scheme supports up to 20 student athletes per year.
Gez Matthews — VP Sport
The VP Sport supports the development of sports clubs and recreational activities at the Union and encourages student engagement. They represent the student voice on sporting issues both locally and nationally. Although mainly based at the Union, Gez has a large cross over to Sport and Recreation to represent the 24 sports clubs within Sport and Recreation. Gez provides the voice for students in all things sport.
I have been interested in sport since I was very young and have graduated in Exercise and Fitness Management. Rugby has been a huge part of my life for a long time and has helped me to grow in confidence and develop teamwork skills. My role as club captain allowed me to see more about how university sport works and the best ways to try and run a club. I’m looking forward to taking on big projects such as the Rainbow Laces campaign and This Girl Can as well as making my own projects to promote and develop university sport.
