Here at Durham University there are two available platforms available to students who wish to participate in sport. The first caters to those wishing to compete at an elite level. This platform is the University itself, Durham University ranked number one in team sports in 2017/2018 with thirteen teams winning in the national British Universities & Colleges Sports (BUCS) finals last year alone.

If you are wishing to represent the University be sure to check relevant Facebook pages and attend the University fresher fair as sign ups for trials take place here. The second platform is the collegiate level, last year Durham colleges had the largest intra-mural sports programme in Britain. This consisted of participation across 18 sports combining in a total of 650 collegiate teams.

As your Sports Officer it is my responsibility to ensure that the opportunity to compete at any sport at any level is available to all students. Sport is not only great for keeping physically and mentally fit but it also provides infinite opportunities to socialise and immerse yourself within collegiate life. Here at John Snow we pride ourselves on our high participation across a variety of sports, so regardless of previous experience please sign up for any or all sports and come and join the John Snow sporting family. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Seb Bagley, Sports Officer
