Sports leagues

On-campus social sports leagues include netball, indoor football, futsal, volleyball and basketball. They’re fun, affordable, and designed for students.

Part exercise, part social affair, our leagues are fun, affordable, and designed for students. All leagues are held on the Kelburn campus—referees and playing bibs are provided.

We host open leagues and mixed leagues. Registrations are open to student teams, combined teams, and individual players (in identified leagues).
