Sports leagues

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

Our social sports leagues are a great way to get active in a fun and friendly environment. Leagues are held on the Kelburn campus. Referees and playing bibs are provided. Leagues run for nine playing weeks and break for the University holidays.
