Abertay Sport

Welcome to Abertay Sport

Sport and physical activity at Abertay University is as much a part of University life as attending lectures and tutorials. Although a small University Abertay offers a wide range of clubs from the traditional sports such as Rugby and Football to the more diverse sports such as Triathlon and Dance.

Sporting success at an elite level

Congratulations to Abertay Student Beth Milne who has been selected for the GB Women’s Ice Hockey Team, competing at the World University Winter Games in Almaty, Kazakhstan from the 29 January–08 February 2017. Also big congratulations to Jaimie Cooper who has been selected for the Scottish Student Netball squad. Home fixtures have been scheduled for mid-April next year.

Competitions and Programmes

The majority of clubs compete competitively in the British University and College Sport (BUCS) leagues where they have had much success in recent years. Abertay sport can also offer a diverse range of non-competitive and recreational sport for those looking to enjoy the social side of club life, including student versus staff golf. Many teams also play in local or regional events organised by Scottish Student Sport (SSS) providing plenty of opportunity for all club the members to play an active role. The 2015/16 season was our most successful to date with four BUCS titles, three SSS titles, a number of local league success stories alongside the highest Sports Union membership to date with over 420 students involved in sport at Abertay.

We are equally proud of our Elite Athlete Development Programme, which is dedicated to helping national standard athletes combine their studies with their sporting commitments. The Programme has, in the past, supported athletes competing at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships in addition to helping many achieve national recognition in their sport.

Membership Fees

Abertay Sport can also offer its students and staff an on campus gym with membership from as little as £30 per term. The facilitates can cover all training requirements, from technical Olympic lifting to first time gym members. We also run a wide range of exercise classes aimed at all levels of participation from high intensity spinning classes to easier lunch time toning sessions.
