The Athletic Union’s Clubs and teams take part in many competitions. Some of the major competitions are listed below.
THE BRITISH UNIVERSITY SPORTS ASSOCIATION
The British University Sports Association is the National Governing Body for student sport. It runs competitions across a huge variety of sports and is the largest provider of University sport in Europe
UNIVERSITIES IN WALES ATHLETIC UNION
The Universities in Wales Athletic Union is the body that caters for sport in only the Welsh Universities. It organises and coordinates the Welsh Championships as well as running all of the Welsh University National sides.
Intramural Football is strong in Swansea with a two league 18 team championship and full cup competition. The games are played on a Wednesday afternoon with some on weekends. Demand for places in the competition is high and so if you dont fancy donning a green shirt for the University get a departmental/hall/social side together and submit your registration as soon as you can. Full details of the football intramural league.
We also have a strong 5 A-side competition run from the sports hall in the University. This competition will probably run after Christmas next year and again demand for places is extremely high. Watch this space for entry details.
We are hoping to get an array of other intramural sports up off the ground this year. As well as competitions in Tennis, Badminton and Squash we are hoping to get a rugby 7’s competition in the summer. Any ideas for competitions you might have are welcome.
