Why set up a new group?

If you think we're missing something from our list of sports clubs & societies you could set up a new group.

Running a sports club or society is easy and takes as much or as little time as you and your fellow committee members would like to give to it.

Your group could run social events, competitions, training, talks, organise a conference, raise money, enter competitions, whatever you like.

Running a group is a great way to develop your skills and make a difference to students.

Sports Clubs

We have based our definition of sport as those recognised by Sports England. Sports that are offered at Sussex are those that have proven to attract interest from students. If you feel that Sussex should offer a Sports England recognised sport, that it currently does not offer then please read the following document before submitting this application form.

Your application will then be considered and voted on by the Sports Reps. If approved, as a new Sports Club, then you will need to book a meeting with Sarah (Sports Development Manager) to sort out risk assessments for your club's future activities, gaining access to a minisite on this website, access to financial accounts and planning what's next.

The Union encourages autonomous student campaigning, and supports students making positive changes through collective action. But what is a campaign? It differs from a group interested in discussing social justice, as it needs to have specific aims and objectives it hopes to achieve. Campaign groups work towards creating change and the aims and objectives help to give the campaign focus. Campaign groups have access to additional support from the Union, including training on how to effectively run a campaign, stuff to support your campaign like banner fabric and paint (and glitter) and access to the campaign fund.
