Recreational Sport is a fun and informal way to be active, try new things and meet friends in a relaxed environment.


Recreational sport is for all students, regardless of your previous relationship to sport.

There is no pressure to compete and you can participate as and when suits you.

Come along, get involved and fall in love with sport and physical activity, all whilst improving your mental health and wellbeing.


Due to the current Scottish Government restrictions regarding COVID-19 we are not able to run recreational sessions, we will update this page when we have more opportunities.

If you are looking to stay active during this time, check out these FREE Les Mill workouts

If you have any ideas of activity that we can facilitate during this time then let us know via
