Sporticipate Sessions

Our recreational sport offer is entitled Sporticipate, and is the entry level programme for all students and staff at The University of Manchester.

All sessions, programmes and events are open to all abilities, specifically people who are new to the activity or complete beginners. All sessions provide equipment and the sessions are facilitated by the UoM Sport Workforce.

Sportcipate runs a full weekly drop in timetable, structured blocks of ‘Learn To’ coached sessions and regular large scale events. All are either free or at very low cost, which helps you stay fit and active during your time on campus.

Sport League Sessions

Sport Leagues are a great way to play the sport you love in a friendly social environment. There are longstanding teams and sports that have a great tradition in the Campus Leagues which you can be part of. However, there is always space for new teams!

Our entries can come from societies, courses and halls entering competitions in addition to groups of friends coming together to forms teams to take part in our weekly activities.

The University of Manchester Squash club runs training sessions for players of all abilities; ranging from absolute beginners to national level players aiming to play professionally. We have 4 men’s teams and 2 women’s teams; our women’s 1st team compete in the BUCS premier division. At UoM Squash you will have access to incredible facilities. Our performance coach Annette Pilling has worked with top 10 world players and is key to our success as a club. Through membership, all players will be able to attend at least one session a week. These range from coach led training to match play-based sessions. There are also internal box leagues and tournaments for players looking for a more competitive experience. The club also run a diverse range of weekly socials, from bowling, curry nights and quiet nights at the pub. Check out our social media pages or contact Lilly Pinggera for further details. 

Club Philosophy
We believe in the development of players through a strong training programme with excellent facilities to maximise performance. We also believe that players of all standards should have access squash as easily as possible. We listen to our members to ensure that their experience at the club is as enjoyable as possible. Finally, we aim to provide an intermediate location for high level players transitioning from junior events to the professional tour. We believe we have the facilities and networks to ensure high level players can remain on a performance pathway.
